Falchions - A falchion ( from Old French fauchon, ultimately from Latin falx "sickle") is a one-handed, single-edged sword of European origin, whose design is reminiscent of the Persian scimitar. The weapon combined the weight and power of an axe with the versatility of a sword.    Falchions are found in different forms from around the 11th century up to and including the sixteenth century. by vashi

A silversmith skillfully made this silbereinband, or solid silver binding, in the late 17th century. The artist, possibly from Bavaria, executed the design in relief. Christ, holding a cross, is represented on the spine, with a snake and a skull at his feet, symbolizing his triumph over Satan & death. On the front of the binding is a beautiful interpretation of the Last Supper, similar to the style of Italian sculptures of the sixteenth century. 2 silver clasps are adorned with floral motifs. by Hercio Dias
