Falcata, Short (MCI-3463)
Falcata, Short (MCI-3463)
The Romans are closing in against your army, but you have the Falcata in your well trained hand. Better than any regular blade, it strikes with the force of a heavy axe through your enemy’s legionnaire armour.
With the perfectly shaped grip, you are able to swing your blade with great dexterity. Perhaps you and your army can turn the tide against the Legion, after all.
Epic Armoury’s 23.6"/60 cm Falcata is a single-edged latex sword inspired by weapons used by the ancient Iberian mercenaries. The 16.5"/42 cm blade is shaped to act like an axe head, delivering powerful blows, while the long cutting edge still allows it to effectively stab and jab like the best of them. The Falcata is a handmade foam product, hand painted to look like real steel, wood, and gold embellishments. The 3.9"/10 cm grip at the end of the Falcata is molded with high realistic detail and hooked in shape, much like the traditional weapon..
The blade is made from durable closed cell foam around a solid 0.28"/7 mm fiberglass core, built with safety in mind! 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 a long time!

This weapon’s handle does not require any special maintenance, while the blade has a latex coating which needs a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using silicone spray, which can be purchased from any home improvement store. We recommend using silicone on a regular basis, taking care not to apply the spray to the handle by first wrapping it in plastic-wrap. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant. Spray on the silicone, wipe off the excvess, and wait 30 minutes.
Store your weapon in a cool, dry environment, and keep your weapon flat or on its pommel--NEVER on its tip. Wrap the weapon in a simple sheet or a towel to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface, or another latex surface, to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products.
