This balisword measures in at 32”. This is around the standard size for a Batangas-made balisword, but finding one in all kamagong with jigged bone inserts is pretty much impossible. These are rare, even deep in the heart of Batangas, and you won’t find these anywhere else!

The blade is hand forged carbon steel with the rambo grind. It features an eagle on the spine, as well as one on the ricasso.

The inserts are beautiful, jet black kamagong (Philippines ebony). I cleaned, oiled and waxed the wood which substantially improves its appearance. This is very time consuming, but well worth it.

Each insert is held in place with two solid copper rivets. There are also two aluminum pins in each insert for contrast. The jigging on the bone is rarely seen on smaller balisongs, and really only done by the craftsmen who made this sword. There is a darker area near the end of one of the bone inserts: this is naturally occurring. 

Each of the brass bolsters is held in place with two copper pins. The housing and latch are also solid brass.

The blade is marked “PHILIPPINES” on the ricasso. Note the detail on the wings and the oversized pivot and tang pins.

There is a row of tiny pits along the central line on the blade on both sides: I have buffed and hand polished them clean before waxing the blade.

Closed, this sword measures in at 17 3/8”.
