Powerful, two handed war sword designed by SBG Sword Tester and designer, Jason Woodard. Individually Hand Made by Chris Palmer in the USA. Please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
An original design by esteemed sword tester and sword designer, Jason Woodard and the first sword in his exclusive Doomsday Line - Sword #01 is a tough, almost indestructible cutting sword capable of generating tremendous cutting power, but balanced close to the hilt for maximum maneuverability.
Designed to be used with two hands close in, its a very versatile design - with the thick, extremely durable blade damaging or knocking aside any other melee weapon that dares to get in its way. Fullered to lighten the blade enough for it to reach maximum velocity - it is essentially of one piece construction, with the walnut wood handle sandwiching the full width tang and secured in place with both large and small pins and a generous application of epoxy.
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.
In practical terms, here is what Doomsday # 001 does to a typical wallhanger blade..
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.
