This Windlass Cobra Steel sword is based on the ancient Greek Kopis. Like the old sword, it has tremendous chopping power. However the point aligns perfectly with the wrist for a thrust, which makes this a good fighting pattern as well! Weather resistant rubber handle for comfort, positive grip and shock absorption on a full profile tang. The hand-forged, X46Cr13 high grade stainless steel blade has been fully tempered in state-of-the-art computer controlled ovens, making it super tough and weather resistant when battling the great outdoors. Hardened to a Rockwell of 48°, it will “flex” in a cut and come back for more! Factory sharp, includes a riveted leather scabbard.
