Limited Edition SBG Exclusive Monotempered Ultra Durable Tactical Ko Katana. Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
An SBG Exclusive hand made from start to finish in the USA by Chris Palmer from Scorpion Swords in Springfield, Missouri - the sword was designed for usage under extreme conditions by Paul Southren, owner and chief editor of Sword Buyers Guide and is based on a Japanese Ko Katana designed primarily for cutting, but can also deliver devastatingly effective thrusts.
The blade itself is made from 1095 carbon steel, which when combined with Chris's superior heat treatment process results in an EXTREMELY DURABLE and almost indestructible sword. The blade is heated to approximately 1500 degrees, until it becomes non magnetic and then quenched in oil. The 2nd step is Heat Tempering, which consists of heating the steel to 500 degrees for 2 hours, and letting it air cool. This makes for a Rockwell Hardness of approximately 59.
Truly full tang, the hard wearing, sandwich tang thermo composite black linen mircarta handle is double pinned and gorilla glued to the blade ensuring no weak points and allowing the blade to reach its full potential.

Featured positive reviews:
I went through the review a number of times. It was very nice to see a no BS Blade with function in mind. It looks like it is very sturdy and tuff meant to be a no nonsense and functional tool. This is my opinion, I seem to have seen some influence from the Cossack/Kazak Shasqua in this design ?
Overall, I like this design very much.
