Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My word today - Falchion Sword- is a one handed single edged sword of European origin whose design is reminiscent of the modern machete.

  1. Hi Mary Ann,

    We have a shop in one of the nearby towns, which sells swords and machetes. They specialise quite heavily in armoury of Chinese origin and this "Falchion" looks remarkably like the Chinese equivalent "Dadao". Although I am not so sure that this guy sells the genuine article, because if you Google images of "Dadao", some of the pictures are pretty scary!

    A great piece of informative and historical wordism today :)
