Black Legion's Abaddon Sickle is alluringly dark, undeniably unique and just plain cool. Like the ubiquitous soul-reaping scythe brandished by the notorious black-robed angel of death, this distinctive fantasy weapon features a vertical handle that bends 90 degrees at the apex to yield a savage, unforgiving arched blade. Unlike the infamous Grim Reaper's millenia-old wood-and-iron scythe, however, the Abaddon boasts rock-solid, one-piece stainless steel construction. A chic metallic red titanium coating shrouds every inch of the sickle, from the bitter, stinging blade point to the tip of the pommel. Sinister spiderweb graphics add an extra touch of creepy to this already delightfully unsettling piece. "Fantasy" Sickle, thought it is, make no mistake - the Abaddon packs some serious, real-world muscle. The 6 1/2" blade edge is carefully honed to razor sharp, and the cord-wrapped handle makes the sickle a pleasure to grip, even serving as a handy source of paracord in a pinch. The heavy duty nylon sheath prevents injuries via the keen, surprisingly sharp blade, while providing protection from the elements and a convenient storage and/or transport option. With Black Legion's Abaddon Fantasy Sickle in hand, you needn't fear any journey through the darkest recesses of the underworld. The Abaddon also makes a great prop, showpiece or gift for fantasy fans, knife collectors or anyone whose tastes lean toward the dark side.
