Made to Order - ON SPECIAL ALL NOVEMBER
Fully functional, nearly indestructible sword inspired by the blade of Ardeth Bay from the movie 'the Mummy Returns'. Individually Hand Made by Chris Palmer in the USA. Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
Influenced from the Sword used by Ardeth Bay in the 2001 movie, The Mummy Returns. Ardeth Bay is a chief member of the Medjai, who were a group of bodyguards of several Pharaohs of Egypt. They were warriors devoted to preventing the rise of evil on the Earth. Ardeth aides Rick O'Connell and his family in destroying the twice resurrected mummy.
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.
