The falcata has a single-edged blade that pitches forward towards the point, the edge being concave near the hilt, but convex near the point. This shape distributes the weight in such a way that the falcata is capable of delivering a blow with the momentum of an axe while maintaining the longer cutting edge of a sword and some facility to execute a thrust. The grip is typically hook-shaped, the end often stylized in the shape of a horse or a bird. There is often a thin chain connecting the hooked butt with the hilt. Although usually a single-edged weapon, double-edged falcatas have been found.
I reskinned the Battle Axe for this due to the nature of how it is used and strikes. It can not be used two-handed.
The Falchion is a one-handed, single-edged sword of European origin. Its design is reminiscent of the Persian scimitar or the Chinese dadao and combines an ax’s weight and power with a sword’s versatility.
The medieval Falchion had a curve one-edged blade, while the European version had a short back edge. It was 37 to 40 inches in length and weighed about 1 to 2 pounds.
Falchions almost always included a single edge with a slight curve on the blade towards the point on the end, and most were also affixed with a quilloned crossguard for the hilt is similar to that of the arming swords.
Unlike Europe’s double-edged swords, few actual swords of this type have survived to the present day.
(In-game terms this is a cheaper sword for people to buy, it is slightly longer than a shortsword, and is not used two-handed.)
A composite bow is a traditional bow made from horn, wood, and sinew laminated together, a form of laminated bow. The horn is on the belly, facing the archer, and sinew on the outer side of a wooden core. When the bow is drawn, the sinew (stretched on the outside) and horn (compressed on the inside) store more energy than wood for the same length of bow. The strength can be made similar to that of all-wood “self” bows, with similar draw-length and therefore a similar amount of energy delivered to the arrow from a much shorter bow. However, making a composite bow requires more varieties of material than a self bow, its construction takes much more time, and the finished bow is more sensitive to moisture.
