A falchion is a military two-handed melee weapon in the heavy blade weapon group.[PH:218][MME:21]

A falchion has high crits, dealing an extra 2d4 damage at levels 1-10, 4d4 damage at levels 11-20, or 6d4 damage at level 21-30, on a critical hit.

Ardents, avengers, barbarians, battleminds, fighters, paladins, rangers, wardens, and warlords are proficient with all military melee weapons, including the falchion. Assassins and swordmages are proficient with military heavy blades, including the falchion.

Other classes do not have proficiency with the falchion as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.
