Sanggot - Bohol Blades - Philippines

  • $ 17500

The Sanggot is one of the hardest blades to forge and sharpen, but it's a local necessity.  The Sanggot is the primary tool of coconut harvesters.  We know you're curious.  If it works great on coconuts, how well will it work on skulls??? 


During Team KIL's recent weapons expedition in the Philippines, we traveled to the town of Sikatuna on the island of Bohol.  There, we searched out a local bladesmith with a worldwide reputation for his mastery of knives.  We were highly impressed when we met Cid Cempron of Bohol Blades.  Cid invited us to his jungle forge; and after a day of grinding, eating, drinking, and discussing knives, a mutual respect was formed between Kombat Instruments Limited and Bohol Blades.

Bohol Blades makes an impressive variety of native Filipino knives and swords.  The wide range of blade shapes are forged from primary leaf spring steel.  The handles, made from carabao horns, are ergonomically designed for a steadfast grip.  All the blades are sheathed in scabbards made from locally sourced balayong hardwood.  These knives were made to be used, and made to be used for a long long time.
