A.P.O.C. Survival Longsword
Ultra durable 9260 Spring Steel Blade designed by the legendary Gus Trim. 32" long blade with two handed handle grip.
After everything hits the fan and the muck has settled, all the symbols that represented the best man had to offer (honor, compassion, liberty, truth, trust, dignity, integrity, justice) are laid waste to give way to what now matters most: survival. In the twilight of man’s morality, a new symbol emerges to bring law to the foreboding chaos to come .. the APOC Long Sword.
Birthed in a design reminiscent of a gilded time the Broad Sword strips away the gaudy to give you a cold blade of 32 1/2” that gives you further reach than its Broad Sword cousin. Featuring a double cutaway in the blade profile, the APOC Broad Sword’s dexterities are quick, light, strong and sharp with all the features of the series to help you stand alone in broken world.
The black textured fiberglass sheaths are fitted to a Molle compatible kydex platform that allows you to secure your swords to belt or pack in multiple carry positions. For belt or sling carry setups the platform has four slots 1 3/8" long and 1/8" wide. A notch in the handle and the platform allows for stealth unsheathing as well as locking the sword securely for inverted maneuvers. No preparations for the end times are complete without an APOC tactical sword for when the bullets run out, the knives are too short and your life is on the line.

Apoc swords are affordable and tough, and this long sword is no different. I own 3 other apoc models and all of them came with the need for quite a lot of work to make them useable weapons. You shouldn’t buy this sword if you expect to cut anything with it out of the box. If you have the ability the sharpen swords or know some one who can then purchase this sword and enjoy its balance and durability. The g10 handles come pretty rough. I sand them flush to the steel and polish them to 3000 grit. I put a convex edge on mine and sanded the black coating off. I mirror polished the handle screws more akin to how the valiant armory zombie killer was. And I also removed the point off the end of the tang which had a hole in it for a lanyard I guess. Not sure who would need one and it brought the balance 4” from the guard along with shaping the g10 scales and grinding a total of 1/8” from the tang. Out of the box the sword felt heavy and clunky with the balance weight more in the handle. While it is much better now it doesn’t feel as nimble as a traditional European longsword. I never had a chance to purchase the zombie killer or handle it so I can’t say if it’s the same performance wise. The scabbard does it’s job well enough and the locking mechanism holds it in place solidly. Anyway I hope this review helps. I gave it 5 stars because I knew what it would turn into once I refined it. Ymmv
