Dated circa 1320, astonishingly this Falchion sword was found in the river Yare at Thorpe St Andrew. Featuring mythical monsters engraved on its brass pommel this is a very rare example of a cusped Falchion, with a ‘cutaway’ shape on the back edge of the blade. This item would wow any local history or weaponry enthusiast and is sure to inspire anyone with a great imagination and a love of myth and legend.
