PEW stands for personal edged weapon. The high quality Böhler D2 Carbon Tool Steel takes a fine edge and holds it for a long time (the downside is you need a diamond or saphire hone to resharpen it). D2 is regarded as the best carbon steel for knives, and is very corrosion resistant for a carbon steel. With a satin finish there is little reason for adding a coating (coatings tend to disguise flaws or lock in moisture that seeps through a break). The handle is extra large to increase comfort and reduce fatigue. The knife features a Yagyu Clan Fat Nose tip. This ancient Japanese design enhances bleed-out. Eight small tactical pins and dovetailed AISI 304 stainless steel bolsters secure the scales to the full tang. The tang is slightly tapered. The quillons extend down to create a secure grip typically reserved for our military designs. The raised thumb rest has gimping.
Things to Consider Before Ordering:
1) Check with your local laws to determine the legality of all items ordered. Seller is not responsible for any items seized by customs or other authorities and will not knowingly make shipments to countries where any items are illegal. By placing an order, you are representing that you are an adult, the product(s) ordered are lawful in your local jurisdiction and that you will use the products in compliance with all applicable laws. You accept full responsibility and costs for all customs fees and VAT. Seller will not replace or refund any item confiscated by local authorities or customs agents.
2) These are handmade. There will be slight imperfections on most handmade work commensurate with its pricing. Mr. Ali's highest quality/grade/difficulty knives generally sell for $300 to $500 through other venues with Collector Grade Butterfly Sword pairs selling for up to $1,595.
3) Plain Language Disclaimer: Knives are inherently dangerous. Glass breakers are also very dangerous to the user and should be used only in cases of life or death and with protective gear. Swords with sharp edges are for display only and should not be used for martial arts training. Even blunt swords are dangerous. You agree that you won't sue the Seller, designer or maker for anything related to using this product for any reason whatsoever and you (and we) really mean it!
