The Chinese Da Dao (translated into “big knife”) was a Chinese sabre used in China by those who wanted a deadly weapon without having to go into a very steep learning curve.  The falchion  might not be what you think about when you think of the Middle Ages, but nonetheless it was a effective sword in its own right!

It it commonly thought that falchion’s were used only by the poor as a weapons and also commonly used as a tool during times of peace.  This is true but it has been noted that some ornamental falchions were carried by nobility.  And there have even been historical illustrations from the Middle Ages depicting armored knights in combat with the falchion.
