This Moro Kampilan has a sharp blade crafted from 5160/D2 high carbon steel with a tempered hardness of 58-60 HRC. The blade is fitted and pinned into a grip of carved hardwood overlaid and cross-hatched with rattan for a grip. The sword comes with a carved wooden scabbard wrapped with bands of rattan.

Among the Moro pirates and tribemen, the Kampilan was a large sword of status that would have been the preserve of Datu chieftains and champions. It is substantially larger than most swords of the Philippines and unless it was wielded by a notably strong individual it would require two hands on the grip. The blade is a true chopper and it terminates in a point well-capable of dealing a deadly thrust. It is said that Datu Lapu-Lapu felled Magellan with such a sword.

The distinctive pommel of the Kampilan is said to represent either the vicious crocodile or the ‘’Bakuwana’’ sea dragon - a beast that swallows the moon in an eclipse.

Please Note: Due to being crafted in a tropical environment with native woods, it is possible 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.
