Recommended Posts

I used to do a lot of Thracian sica & Dacian falx.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sica

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falx
It presents a few of them.
The blades,Thracian sica, are interesting because they forged one side, ie, on the one hand at an angle and have, in the so-called archaeological literature. "Channel of blood" ...... which is the purpose of today one hundred percent is not certain ....
Certainly reinforced blade ....

Dacian falx. Total length 90 cm, 66.5 cm blade length, blade width at the base is 2.5 cm, 740 gram.
Linings are made of oak handles, riveted with copper rivets, all rubbed suet wild

Beautiful shapes, and a nice rustic finish.
