Scorpion Swords Defender's Short SwordBe the first one to write a review
Made to Order
Fully functional single edged one or two handed grip shortsword. Individually Hand Made by Chris Palmer in the USA. Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
Elegant in its simplicity and optimized for the cut either one or two handed, the defender's shortsword is a blade that should never be underestimated. Hailed as the 'ultimate urban self defense blade' with the durability of a machete yet the cutting power of a scimitar, no zombie apocalypse bug out bag would be complete without it!
Optimized to transition easily between slashing, cutting and thrusting - weighing in at 2lbs it can wind up and deliver deceptively fast and powerful blows and is so intimidating looking that even zombies might think twice about attacking someone armed with it.
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.
