This sharply angled, thrusting-oriented blade is the Hagibis - which means ‘’speed’’ or ‘’rapidity’’ in Tagalog. It dates back to the Spanish occupation of the Philippines, but the version seen here dates to a redesign from the early 60’s, done by the grandfather of the current Grand Master of Pekiti Tirsia Kali - a Philippine martial arts focused on utilitarian knife, machete and sword fighting. He altered the knife to make it a dedicated killing knife with no pretense to utilitarian or camp functions. The sharply tapered blade ensures that a wound from a thrust widens considerably after only an inch and a half of penetration.

Crafted in the Philippines, this Hagibis has a sharp blade of 5160/D2 high carbon steel tempered to HRC 58-60. The guard and ferrule are of darkened metal and the grip is of carved wood.

A carved wooden scabbard with a blade-retaining clip is included. The metal clip ‘’locks’’ the blade in place by going over the lip of the guard. It can be released by a good tug on the grip.

Please Note: Due to being crafted in a tropical environment with native woods, it is common for these weapons to develop thin, minor cracks in the wood and the scabbard as the woods adjust to our more temperate environment. Cracks in items sent to you will not be harmful to the structural integrity of the item. Also - The decorative rattan wrapping can be brittle and may crack or break.

It is recommended that a light coating of protective oil is used to protect the wood from dryness and cracking.
