Additional information

This short sword has a sharpened blade of 5160/D2 high carbon steel. The guard and pommel nut are brass and the grip is carved wood. The sword comes with an intricately carved wooden scabbard with bands of rattan wrap. Northern style Sansibar swords, in all their varieties, were used by the Igorots to resist the Spanish conquest. These swords are swift and agile cutters with a pronounced tip well-suited for a deadly thrust.

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.
