This is one of the very old Kris Cutlery Kampilan made in the 1990’s. Long blade is 27-1/4” and 5/32” thick near the guard. The spike or hook on the blade tip is intact. A series of holes are found near the blade point. Made from 5160 steel but was not tempered/hardened.
Handle is made of hardwood glued to the blade tang. Molave wood guard is used. The grip is kamagong or Makassar ebony and is 3-3/4” long. A copper pin was added to the grip. Forked back part of the handle is Molave wood as well. Total handle length is 10-3/4” including the guard and pommel.
Some sanding scratches are visible on the blade as well as some stains. This Kampilan is very sturdy and best for sword exercise or for display. The blade cannot be used for cutting since the edge is not hardened. Balance point is 8-1/2” and feels slightly heavy which is good for exercise.
