Made to Order
Ultra Durable, fully functional Orc style Battle Ready War Cleaver. Individually Hand Made by Chris Palmer in the USA. Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
This original fully functional, battle ready Fantasy Sword was designed by a member of the SBG community as part of the official SBG Fantasy Sword Design competition and brought to life in steel by Chris Palmer from Scorpion Swords LLC.
Like Fantasy Orcs, this sword is cruel and brutal in every apsect of its design. Designed for when it gets up close and personal, the design excels at close quarters fighting. In the hands of an Orc, it is capable of easily splitting a human skull clean in half or hacking a human into pieces to put them in the dinner pot. For the back serrated edge can be used in all manner of utilitarian ways, and even the pommel, which is an extension of the full tang design can be used to deliver a hideous blow (and has a hole for a lanyard or whatever gruesome trophy an Orc might choose to decorate it with).
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 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.
