We report inelastic neutron scattering studies of the prototypical kagome magnetic metal FeSn. The spectra display well defined spin waves extending up to 120 meV. Above this energy, the spin waves become progressively broadened, reflecting interactions with the Stoner continuum. Using linear spin wave theory, we determine an effective spin Hamiltonian that explains the measured dispersion. This analysis indicates that the Dirac magnon at the K point occurs on the brink of a region where well defined spin waves become unobservable. Our results emphasize the influential role of itinerant carriers on the topological spin excitations of metallic kagome magnets.
