    A Glimpse of a Recent Custom Creation:
    A third of our business is custom blade orders. This particular customer submitted his own unique design influenced from the historical Gladius and Viking swords, with a finger hole for many uses. He wanted it very durable and ready for use. Turned out nice.

    SBG FEATURED BLADE OF THE WEEK: Orc War Cleaver
    An SBG Exclusive hand made from start to finish by Scorpion Swords & Knives. This sword is cruel and brutal in every aspect of its design. Designed for when it gets up close and personal, the design excels at close quarters fighting. For the back serrated edge can be used in all manners of utilitarian ways, and even the pommel, which is an extension of the full tang design can be used to deliver a hideous blow. As with ALL our swords and knives, this blade is EXTREMELY DURABLE and almost indestructible blade.

    I think you are referring to a custom version of our Hakai Sword. It's a bit longer and different tip than our original Hakai next to it. This is our original Hakai: https://traditionalarcherybows.com/handmade_sword_of_hakai_p88.html .

    That custom one is what it looked like below (he wanted the blade blackened too as opposed to the satin finish):

    Blade width is approximately 1 3/4" , blade length was around 22", handle length was 12. We don't know what the weight was before it was shipped. The bevel is about 3/4 to 1 inch wide flat grind, and that's the extent of my bevels that I do. If you are looking for a quote, you can just e-mail us your request and we can look it over and give you a quote ([email protected]).
