The Rigor Mortis (Latin for stiffness of death) is a family of multi-purpose survival knives and machetes. The primary purpose of thee blades are to provide an excellent tool for survival and self-defence for outdoor adventurers, law enforcers, and the military alike.
Owing to the fact that a vast number of armourers at NS Arms Corporation used to be a bladesmith, they decided to refresh their skills so that they will never forget their skills and to teach their skills to others that are interested.
Initial impromptu designs and prototype were built back in late 2014, although they were made by the bladesmiths for the fun of it and as a way to keep their bladesmithing skills up to date, thus the designs were shelved.
In late November 2015, these bladesmiths re-encountered the previously shelved design and decided to make the best out of it; a multi-purpose survival tool for civilians and armed forces alike. The final design was finalised in mid-December and production began in January the following year.
The Rigor Mortis are forged out of durable, stainless-steel material. Different types of blades and handles are available depending on the customer's wishes, ranging from a cutting blade, saw blade, and a combination of both.
