Hattin Falchion
Windlass Steelcrafts

Indigenous European Scimitar

Whether noble knight or common man at arms, it’s a prime example of this lesser known and under-appreciated European sword form. Falchions were a family of single-hand Medieval and Renaissance swords that included the Messer, Storta, Braquemart, Badelair and Malchus, among others. So named for it’s single-edged “falcated” blade, from the Latin falcatus and falx meaning sickle, it refers to a sword that widens or curves forward at the point. Tracing its roots far back to Greco-Roman forms, the falchion has its own distinct aesthetic. No mere scimitar from the East, this is an indigenous European sword form that came in immense variations of shape, size, point design and hilt style.

What are the Advantages?

The Hattin has a sharp front-loaded heavy blade capable of tremendous cleaving blows, chopping strikes and devastating slashes. Other swords achieve this by creating an extremely tip heavy blade that feels like an axe but the Hattin's center of gravity is well-balanced enough for a quick center-of rotation that gives its curved tip impressive play and manoeuvrability.

How it's Forged

This medieval Hattin Falchion is from Windlass Steelcrafts' BattleCry collection. Designed specifically to be used and made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, extra wide tang and tempering to a low 50's RC. The darkening of the steel makes the swords more closely resemble the originals which contained more iron then today's superior steels. This pre-sharpened blade has gone through rigorous testing. The hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.
