If the ancient Greeks and Spartans had THIS sword in their arsenal, the rest of the world would never have stood a chance. Original Xiphos were the back up weapon of the Hoplite ranks and its variations were a common iron age weapon throughout the region - but this sword would have cut them all to pieces like a hot knife through butter..

With a strongly pronounced leaf shape blade, it is equally at home cutting as it is thrusting, and is complimented by an attractive deer leather handle wrap over two slabs of Black Linen Mircarta.

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 (and also includes a deer leather wrap for extra style and comfort).

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.
