Made to Order
Fully functional blade inspired by the Greek Kopis. Individually Hand Made by Chris Palmer in the USA. Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
The Reaper blade is based on the Ancient Greek Kopis, which in turn can trace its origins to the much older Egyptian Khopesh. Here, the blade is taken into the 21st century, the time proven forward-curving blade was historically designed for for lopping limbs and hacking off heads and these days, would make the perfect Zombie slaying accessory!
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 and visible 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.
