Ginunting w/Kamagong Scabbard - Ifugao, Philippines

  • $ 25000

The Ginunting (or Gnunting, or Gununting) is a sword style that is popular in the Visayas.  With its signature downward curved blade, the Ginunting proudly displays its humble origins as a Filipino weapon crafted from a pair of agricultural scissors.  This Ginunting comes with a scabbard made from locally sourced Kamagong.


During Team KIL's recent weapons expedition in the Philippines, we traveled to the Kali Tribe Alliance Global Convention.  Our KIL founder, Tuhon Nick Papadakis, was asked to instruct a class on his kali techniques.  The convention organizer, Tuhon Rommel Tortal, invited us to visit his home the next day.

As we stepped into Rommel's office, we were impressed by his walls which were lined with racks and racks of blades.  These were swords and knives made by the Ifugao people; traditional Filipino blades, forged to look contemporary.  We definitely had to bring some back for you.
