The very last of the discontinued Fantasy Celtic Swords from the Legendary Swords Project - on final closeout sale pricing. Includes leather sheathe.
The very last of the discontinued Fantasy Celtic sword from the Legendary Swords Project, now available from stock. Includes a leather sheathe (pictured).
An original design with the same wide and punishing blade as the Achilles Sword but with a much more attractive handle with solid brass fittings that put an additional six ounces of weight at the rear of the sword, giving it much faster and more agile handling and also evoking the ancient swords of the early Celts (for the hilt is a variation of the limited edition 'Celtic Pride' sword by Scorpion Swords).
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 Walnut wood handle is affixed in place with 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.
DESIGNED BY: SBG Forum Member 'Klarson' in conjunction with SBG and Scorpion Swords.
