Made to Order
Fully functional modern, tactical version of the classic Filipino Ginunting Sword. Individually Hand Made by Chris Palmer in the USA. Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
A highly versatile military blade, the Ginunting is a traditional Filipino blade design that is so effective even in the modern world that it is the default blade of choice for the Filipino Marine Corp.
It can and is used in the field for clearing bush, chopping firewood, preparing food and of course in a pinch, to quickly end an unexpected hand to hand combat situation using a variety of highly effective technique distilled from ancient Filipino fighting systems.
The basic design is timeless - with an inward curving beak like blade that has surfaced time and time again across many countries and eras capable of delivering shearing cuts and forceful chops with just a quick flick of the wrist.
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 brine (salt water). 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 57.
Truly FULL tang, the Black Linen Mircarta handle is affixed in place with hidden pins and gorilla glue resulting in the strongest handle construction possible. Combined with the tough blade and you have a sword with no weak points that maximizes its durability.
Unlike most other swords at this price point, Scorpion Swords are individually hand made by Chris Palmer at his workshop in Missouri. All orders are handmade in our shop as orders are received. They are NOT Factory Made! High order volume makes it difficult to keep any of their weapons in stock, so please allow 6-8 weeks for completion and delivery.
