This beast of a short sword really packs some muscle! The "Jungle Beast" from Forged Warrior is a flawlessly crafted, single piece of cold, unforgiving high carbon spring steel. Among the toughest of all high carbon steels, “spring” steel is renowned for its incredible yield strength, unmatched deformation resistance and astounding ability to return to its original shape after being subjected to extreme bending, twisting and other stress. As such, it’s the alloy-of-choice for countless high-intensity applications - aircraft landing gear, piano wire, bridge cable, communications towers and – as the name suggests – coil and leaf springs on colossal industrial vehicles. And just as leaf springs flex and bounce back under the oppressive force of vehicles weighted in the hundreds of tons, the one-piece spring steel Jungle Beast withstands and delivers blow after punishing blow without cracking, chipping or warping. Indeed, the Jungle Beast boasts resilience and strength on a level achieved by few other swords – and none at this price point. Wrapped with genuine black leather in the traditional samurai sword style, the handle has a comfortable grip and features a lanyard. The blade is mirror-polished and razor sharp - exactly what you need to cut your way through a jungle or heavy brush environment. Just sling it over your shoulder in the included genuine, premium leather shoulder sheath and you’re ready for anything!
