This is a top quality, custom made, plamingko knife (known as a talibong in other parts of the Visayas) which was handmade on the island of Cebu by one of the most reknowned forges in the region. The blade features a left-side chisel grind. The sheath is hand carved out of native wood, which was then darkened using heat. The Scottish roe deer handle is definitely a unique touch. I took a matching pair of these legally sourced antlers to Cebu to have them make some plamingkos for Pinoy Steel. They came out really well, but there is a little excess epoxy on the crown of the antler and the blade. It could definitely be removed with a little work, but it ensures a good, strong bond.

The razor sharp blade is hand forged carbon steel and should be kept oiled as it will rust if not taken care of, but it is far superior to stainless steel if it is to be used as more than a display piece. This knife measures approximately 20". The blade is 12.5" long and about 3/16" thick at its base. It weighs 12.5 oz without the scabbard, and 17.1 oz with the scabbard. 

These are definitely not available anywhere else!
