Leaf blade shaped swords are one of the earliest types of blade - first made in bronze and then later iron. Used as a backup weapon by the ancient Greeks, Spartans and Celts - in the modern era where opponents do not fight with spears or shields and most conflicts occur in confined spaces such as home invasions, this sword has enough length to keep most other weapons at bay but is short enough to be used even if being wrestled, and the classic design is perfectly balanced between cutting, thrusting and plain old hacking..

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 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.
