TWO-HANDED FALCHION

I discovered a rather frightening weapon from the medieval period. It is a two-handed variation of the falchion sword with teeth at the tip that is designed to bite into an enemy’s armor while chopping. I first discovered this weapon while watching the film Ironclad and I initially thought it was a made up weapon for the sake of creativity. Now, I find out that this was a real weapon and a terrifying one. This blade is shaped like a sword yet has the weight of an axe with each blow. If this blade’s wielder is big and strong enough that it can be a completely scary weapon on the battlefield. I am thinking of including this variant of the falchion in my spin-off fantasy trilogy and it will even have a funny ironic nickname.
