Number 1: The Falchion Blade

Our Falchion Sword takes inspiration from a diverse array of designs spanning different continents and historical periods.

Number 3: Gladius Sword

The Gladius sword earned its name as the primary weapon of choice for Ancient Roman infantry. In Latin, "gladius" translates to sword. Typically, soldiers employed javelins from a distance before transitioning to close quarters combat, where the Gladius sword, accompanied by a shield, took center stage.

Number 4: Bastard Sword

The term "bastard sword" was coined to describe the longsword during the late medieval and Renaissance epochs. To fall under this classification, a sword should measure between 33 to 45 inches, a size met by this 38-inch longsword. The hilt boasts a wooden core wrapped in leather, enhanced by Damascus steel accents, all encased in a meticulously handcrafted leather sheath.
