The Sanduko Tenegre is a Visayan blade from the Island of Panay in the central Philippines. Sanduko is the term for belly, and it refers to the curve of the blade. Tenegre refers to the stylized head that is depicted in the handle. The tenegre, sometimes translated as tiger, is seen as an ancestoral spirit. The tenegre design is often seen in the blades of Panay. This blade shape is one of the sansibars blade types and is great for both slashing and thrusting.
The lightweight mahogany scabbard features a metal belt clip for mounting. The clip has a friction based retention feature to prevent the blade from slipping out. The brass handguard protects the fingers from being slashed. It is not only a beautiful element that complements the blade design, but also a structural component that serves to make the handle and tang connection stronger.

Note: Each blade is handmade in the Philippines and therefore may have slight variations in sizes as well as small imperfections in the finishing or construction dimensions. Variations and slightly irregular lines are common among all handmade blades in the Philippines. We believe that these imperfections do not affect performance.
Blade Use: Although we make our blades durable and strong, we do not recommend you test cut hard materials. Our long blades can cut light brush, but they are not designed to chop wood or cut thick branches.
