In Frank Herbert's Dune universe, swords and blades are the preferred weapon of war due to the invention of the Holtzman personal shield - a small handheld device which protects the user from fast moving projectiles, rendering firearms almost obsolete. Over many centuries they have refined hand to hand combat - perfecting the art of deceiving an opponent and catching them with a blade where the shields user did not anticipate..

This battle ready sword is inspired by one of the training swords seen as a prop in the movie - Paul's training sword pictured below:

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.

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.

I'm sorry my first review was not all that it should have been. Somehow the words got mixed up. But it is an awesome sword and it is become one of my favorites. I am not easy to please so to provide a good review is something that is special for me.
