Scorpion Swords Tactical Wakizashi
Made to Order
A Sword Buyers Guide EXCLUSIVE!
Monotempered Ultra Durable Tactical One Handed Wakizashi. Individually Hand Made by Chris Palmer in the USA. Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
An SBG Exclusive hand made from start to finish in the USA by Chris Palmer from Scorpion Swords in Springfield, Missouri - the sword was designed for usage under extreme conditions by Paul Southren, owner and chief editor of Sword Buyers Guide. Based on the traditional Japanese single handed Wakizashi, it is perfect for close in fighting with enough mass to deliver a shearing cut and an acute tip for deep penetration in the thrust. Combined with the Tactical Ko Katana, it can also be dual wielded for maximum effect and intimidation factor.
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.

Just rec'd delivery of my sword. I was floored by its obvious durability, quality of materials and workmanship, and balance. Perfect for feral hogs in Florida, or whatever. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is more concerned with function than pure aesthetics, although it is beautiful in its intended, austere form. Please feel free to use my name as an endorsement for this product. Thank you very much.
