The Medieval Faussart Sword is thought to have developed in 10th Century AD France. It's unusual pattern has caused debates with Historians that cite The Faussart Sword was built closer to the 16th Century AD – as called The ''Warbrand''. No 10th Century versions exist, but they do appear in various 12th Century illuminated manuscripts. The blade is roughly 48-inches long and 2-inches in width. A single edged blade (also unusual for the period), features an heavy top ''spine''.
The Handles were said to be wooden or perhaps bone, and up to 3-feet long. This was seen as giving the User the ability to use two hands to wield. This also aided in not accidentally dropping the blade in combat due to impact force. Linked to The War Scythe and later Glavie Pole Arm (of which many cite were evolved from The Faussart). Most versions in existence are dated to the 16th Century.
