Falchion
falchion.jpg

A falchion combines the versatility of a sword with the weight and power of an axe. Due to its unique design, despite able to be held by one hand, it requires two-hands to be wielded properly. The design of the falchion sword is similar to that of the scimitar. Where the scimitar is entirely curved, the falchion blade remains curved only at the tip of the blade where it then takes on the slight shape of the axe. The blade itself is fairly broad and the handle quite weighted.
