The official sword of the Philippine Marines, the downward-curved Ginunting can not only decisively chop and shear with its scythe-like blade, but its beak-like tip can be used like a pick, delivering a piercing wound that can strike with more force than a standard stabbing motion. Although well suited for fighting, the Ginunting is an excellent tool for clearing brush and light camp duties. It is easy to see why the Philippine Marines carry such a blade with them into the jungle.

This Philippine-crafted Pinute has a sharp blade of 5160/D2 high carbon steel tempered to HRC 58-60. A simple guard and ferrule of darkened steel separate blade from grip. The grip is of carved wood with a brass nut on the pommel. 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.
