Binakuko – A wonderful new crop of Moro blades has recently been delivered by our master bladesmith in the Philippines to round out our collection from this region of the islands. We now possess in our bladed arsenal, all of the weapons on the famous “Weapons of Moroland” plaque with these last four.

The Binakuko, at only 19 inches overall, is an amazing specialized in-fighting weapon with a razor sharp 14 inch blade. Permanently affixed to the blade is a beautiful handcarved handle of ironwood, finished with metal ferrule which contributes to a extremely secure grip, fitting the hand exactly. Accompanying this unique sword is a handcarved scabbard with retaining clip and accented with securely wrapped rattan skin lashings.

We feel that the Binakuko, along with the Janap, Kambantuli, and Pinsawali, make the perfect set, being similarly sized, fast, sharp and uniquely crafted. Why not invest in all four? These blades are bound to increase in value over the years as this artform may gradually die out.
