Could it be that the Sri Lankan weapon shown here in a simple woodcut is in fact a Falchion ...see example.
This is an early landing by a Dutch group in Eastern Sri Lanka where the right hand tribal warrior is holding a similar weapon...Is this the Falchion? A remarkably similar weapon to the Stone Freize weapon.
This picture(kNOX) with RELATION DE CEYLAN has another warrior at right with a similar weapon...
A picture in the hands of a European is shown to compare ...
