These ginuntings were designed by one of the foremost and well-known instructors in the Pekiti-Tirsia system for his students' own use. These are excellent quality swords that were designed and built for combat from the ground up. I have sold over a dozen of these swords and they are always popular items here at Pinoy Steel.

This ginunting measures in at 23 3/4" overall. The handle is solid mulawin (a Philippines hardwood species) and is 5 1/4" long. It swells toward the end, as is traditional, and feels great in hand. The bolster and guard are solid aluminum, and contribute 3/4" to the length of the sword.

The spine of the blade has a 4.5″ sharpened swedge.

The handle is comfortably sized, even for my large hands.

Full-tang construction with beefy aluminum pins means this blade is staying put. The balance point is 2 1/16" in front of the guard.

The blade is 17 3/8" long and hollowground with a distal taper. The swedge is sharp, but not razor sharp (although it wouldn't take long to get there). The primary edge is very sharp. The blade is 300-series stainless, which is flexible and tough. It won’t hold an edge as long as carbon steel, but this blade requires minimal maintenance. That makes this a great blade for actual combat use, where edge retention is less of a concern.

The scabbard is constructed from two pieces of beautiful mulawin hardwood.
