In the Broken Kingdom of Thane,the Orcs rise yet again. But this time, they are united – by the power of this humble looking War-Cleaver in the hands of King Guruk the malevolent.
The Chopper is a fairly typical Orcish weapon – no bells, no whistles – just raw, viscous functionality.. Almost all Orcs have one of these among their personal armories, and they use for anything from chopping up ‘meat’ (don’t ask) and sawing the bones with the serrated false edge, throwing it at close range and – of course – hacking, chopping and stabbing anything they can get away with to nice bite sized bits (we did say don’t ask)..
Even the pommel, often with lanyard, can be used to deliver a devastating pommel strike, and the hand-guard is a nasty hook of a thing..
But while the Orc Kings Chopper looks like all the rest, it has one important difference. It has been saturated with the darkest of black magics during a secret ritual that only the Orc King knows about, and even he cannot remember the details of that fateful day..
What he does know is that he bears the hideous scar on his arm from the blood magic like a badge of honor. And when he fights or kills with it, it glows – hungry for more.. And more.. And more..
For this murderous blade is possessed of a powerful unknown and vengeful spirit. When it cuts the flesh of a living creature, it pulls the blood it into the blade like a hungry vampire, giving it a ‘charge’ and the wound continues to bleed much heavier than normal as a side effect.
The sword can hold a maximum of 9 charges, when it reaches zero it becomes ‘hungry’ and will force its host the Orc King to seek out blood for it, or if none is readily available, it will take it from him as it has before..
POWERS OF THE SWORD
In addition to causing heavy bleeding on each cut, the Orc Kings War-Cleaver has the following powers:
Command – by expending one charge, the Orc King can rally his troops, boost morale and order them to suicidal attacks if need be.
Guardian Mode – Warchiefs need to be paranoid to survive. But an Orcish King needs to take it to new levels, and by activating one charge it will leap up into the air and hover, readying to strike anyone that comes close – allowing an uninterrupted sleep.
Behead – by expending 3 charges, if the King is close enough to strike and can land a blow, it automatically lands square on any man sized opponents neck – and if they are unarmored, results in instant death by decapitation.
Death Throw – by expending all 9 charges, the sword turns blood red and may be hurled screaming through the air like a banshee directly at an opponent, and will home in on them, landing full force in the center of their chest (or their back, if they are running away). Armored opponents may survive this devastating attack (if they are exceptionally armored and exceptionally hardy), but unarmored opponents are almost certainly dead.
Part of the Legendary Swords Project, this fully functional Fantasy Sword has been brought to life in our collaboration with Chris Palmer from Scorpion Swords and is exclusive to SBG.
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 oil. 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 59.
Truly FULL tang, the Burnt 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.
