Epic Armoury’s 85 cm Battleworn Falcata is a single-edged latex medium sword inspired by weapons used by the ancient Iberian mercenaries. The 66 cm blade is shaped to act like both an axe head and thrusting sword, delivering powerful blows, while still stabbing and jabbing like the best of them. The Falcata is handmade and hand painted to look like real steel, wood, and gold embellishments, but as with our other Battleworn weapons, details and paint effects have been added to make this sword look used and bruised. The 10 cm grip at the end of the Falcata is realistically moulded and hooked around the hand, much like the traditional weapon.
The blade is made from durable closed cell foam around a solid 8 mm fibreglass core, built to keep you safe! It is finished with a strong latex coating. The grip is a polyurethane cast that requires no maintenance, meaning you’ll enjoy using this sword at your LARP game for many seasons!
A typical weapon of Celtic mercenaries of south-western Europe, this sword is ideal for barbaric and savage characters. Since it is also similar to Greek and Egyptian curved weapons, it can also be used for war veterans from exotic locales looking to start new lives as adventurers.
