This Kris Sword has a distinctively formed and sharp blade of 5160/D2 high carbon steel with a tempered hardness of 58-60 HRC. Bands of brass are fitted to the base of the blade and the grip is formed from a brass ferrule and a grip of hardwood.
The scabbard is carved from wood and bound with bands of rattan. The sword and scabbard was crafted in the Philippines.
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.
