  1. The two-handed falx was a polearm.The two-handed falx was a pole-arm. It consisted of a 3 feet (0.91 m) long wooden shaft with a long curved iron blade of nearly-equal length attached to the end. Archaeological evidence indicates that the one-handed falx was also used two-handed

  2. Happy Birthday.

    You have to love google searches. One two handed weapon was the falx aka a polearm. Falx was Latin for sickle, but it was any scythe style weapon. It would be great for an old vampire:)

  3. The Falx which is related to the Thracian rhomphaia, had to add something a little a little different, lol.

  4. first thing that popped into my head was a glave but I don’t think that was during that time period. . . I guess I’ll go with falx (great to have google)

  5. I have to admit to googling this and have now learned my new thing for the day. The Falx came in two sizes one handed and two handed. It says it was a 3 foot pole with a curved 16 inch blade. Not something you want to meet in a dark alley.

  6. This dreaded weapon, similar to a large sickle, came in two variants: a shorter, one-handed falx called a sica, and a longer two-handed version. The shorter falx was called sica (sickle) in the Dacian language. The two-handed falx was a polearm.

  12. I would have had no idea but it’s nice to know other people have kids with crazy interests and trivia.

  13. Falx… the bigger version, which I understand is like a sickle in anime mode, i.e. bigger than longer than a normal sickle.

  14. I had to look his up as I had no idea what the heck your child was talking about. The answer is a Falx. By the way how old is the above mentioned child?
