The official Falchion Knife Description states:
“A modern homage to a falchion sword, this clip point blade has a curved edge.”
The Falchion Knife is a cosmetic CS:GO knife available to players in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and is an extremely rare item only obtainable from a Falchion Case. The Falchion Knife was introduced as part of the Operation Bloodhound update.

It originally deploys faster than other knives at .97 of a second as opposed to 1 second, but this has been fixed in the April 20, 2017 update. The Falchion Knife is cosmetic only, and shares the same performance as the default knife. It is drawn by unfolding the blade from the handle.
The Falchion Knife has two inspection animations. The default animation involves the player spinning the knife on his palm and inspecting it. The second rare animation has the player balancing the knife vertically on his hand for a few seconds.
Though pronounced as “faul-shun”, many players mistake this as the “Falcon Knife”.
The Falchion Knife is modeled after the Espada (Large) by Cold Steel.
