A falchion is a medieval single handed, one edged sword of European origin. The Falchion sword may come from a French word for a sickle, "fauchon". The back of the sword is either straight or somewhat concave and the edge is convex curve. Falchion swords can be seen in Medieval art being used against lighter armors by infidels as well as footman and even knights. The weapon is entirely European and was derived from the Sax. Some historians say the sword is related to the Dark Age long knife, seax or scramanseax. Some Falchions are shaped like a large meat cleaver or machete. Falchions are found in different forms from around the 11th century up to and including the 16th century. The Falchion sword is thought to be primarily a peasant's weapon and was used in everyday life when not in battle. There are very few actual Falchion swords that have survived to the present day.
