This ginunting trainer is from the previous generation and is an excellent tool for the martial artist who wants to approximate the weight and feel of a live ginunting during training. It is a little longer than the live ginuntings I listed today at around 23.5”.

image

The handle is beautiful molave or mulawin heartwood and it is secured to the tang with a thick aluminum rivet. The bolster and guard are both solid aluminum. The guard is thicker than on the newer swords and the bolster is slightly recessed. The molave portion of the handle is 5 11/16” long and the bolster is 21/32”. The bolster is a little rough, but could easily be cleaned up if desired.

image

The blade is 3/16” thick at its base and 1 1/4” wide at the ricasso, which closely approximates the dimensions of the live ginuntings from this forge. The blade is 17 1/8” long and the balance point is 2.5” in front of the guard, again, closely approximating the dimensions and balance of a live ginunting.

The swedge is 4 3/16” long.

The scabbard is beautiful molave/mulawin heartwood with great chatoyancy, color and figuring.

image

This older-style handle has lots of room.

This ginunting trainer weighs in at 11 oz, a little over two-thirds of the weight of a live ginunting or steel trainer. The scabbard is 6 oz, for a total weight of 1 lb 1 oz. $159.
