For Sale: Custom Falchion from Heron Armouries

Postby Sekhemet on Fri Mar 13, 2009 8:37 am

I am selling a brand new custom made falchion built by Tim Noyes of Heron Armouries based in the UK.

Tim Noyes is a very highly regarded sword maker, and is particularly well known in the re-enactment circuit for excellent quality workmanship and durable, lasting blades. I personally know several re-enactment colleagues who have had Tim Noyes swords for over 5 years, and they look as good as they did the day they were forged.

Anyway, the falchion was ordered as a customised sword by myself for the new re-enactment season, but since this time I have found a slightly shorter one which I am much happier with.

I have attached several pictures of the sword, handle and tip.

Specs

Blade length from tip to quillion - 24 inches.
length of handle from bottom of pommel to quillion - 5 inches
length of handle from top of pommel to quillion - 7 inches
The handle is firmly wrapped with leather and sealed at the quillion with a brass band.
Weight - 2.5 pounds (lbs)

The blade has one fuller which runs from the quillion 21 inches down the blade.
The blade widens with the curve of the falchion edge.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SWORD IS BLUNT - it is UK regulation 3mm edge on the 'cutting side' and 5 mm from the quillion 'blunt side' to 3mm at 21 inches (to simulate the double cutting edge round the top 3 inches of the tip of the sword).

The quillion is an 's' curved version which serves to protect the fingers/ knuckles from a cut or strike.

This sword has no dents, scratches, rust patches or blemishes - it is brand new.

I would like £230 for this falchion. Postage within the UK will be £� Will have to check for Southern Ireland...

I will accept a Paypal payment or a cheque.

Please feel free to email me at wa_char21@hotmail.com for details or to conclude the transaction.

As per UK laws on curved swords I have to ask whether you are 18 years of age, and whether you are with either a re-enactment group or a martial arts group.
