Falchion sword

A Falchion is a large, single-edged, two-handed sword.[1]


The falchion looks much like a big scimitar with a wide blade curved toward the tip. The blade is one-sided and heavy, weighing as much as some greatswords. The pommel, cross guard, and grip are similar to a bastard sword. An average falchion costs 75gp and weighs 8lbs (3.6kg).[1]


The heavy blade of the falchion gives it an almost axe-like ability to chop through armor and yet retain the advantages of a sword. Its weight requires two hands and special training to wield effectively and is therefore considered a martial weapon.[1]


Several heroes of the realm, including Aoth Fezim and Gaedynn Ulraes, have wielded falchion swords.[2]
