Fully functional double edged Templar Knight themed medieval beater sword. Individually Hand Made by Chris Palmer in the USA. Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
The Knights Templar was a large organization of devout Christians, during the medieval era (1099), who had a mission of protecting European travelers visiting the Holy Land from being attacked by bandits. They were brave, highly skilled, strategic thinking, fierce fighting warriors. They also acted as the advanced force in a number of battles. Their fearless style of fighting became a model for other military orders.
This sword by Scorpion Swords is a powerful beater sword made as tribute - evoking the theme of these medieval warriors with modern steel and construction techniques.
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.
