This Filipino ceremonial and execution knife was crafted in the Philippines; the blade is sharp 5160 / D2 high carbon steel with a tempered hardness of about 58-60 HRC. The thick blade tang is surmounted by two carved hardwood halves to form the grip. The bolster is brass and the knife comes with a carved scabbard with bands of rattan and a darkened metal belt clip that doubles as a blade retainer by gripping the knife bolster when sheathed.

In the Northern Philippines these large, ornate knives were typically used for the ceremonial decapitation of criminals. A large weapon, nearly a short sword in size, this knife could certainly be used for fighting as well.

Please Note: It is common for the tropical hardwood used to craft the grip and scabbard of these weapons to develop small cracks as the wood adjusts to our temperate environment. We inspect these items for major cracks and will not send such items to you. We will however send items that may have small, light cracks. These are light cosmetic blemishes and we will not send you an item with a crack that impacts the structural integrity and usefulness of the weapon. These small and light cracks are common to the type of wood used.

By routinely applying a light coating of protective oil you can protect the wood from drying out in your own home.
