This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

Hailing from the Visayan Islands of the central Philippines, the machete-like Pinute is a lightweight, straight-spined chopping blade that is designed for both utility and defense. Farmers will use the Pinute when chopping bamboo for building material, but if the need for defense arises this same work-a-day blade is eminently suited for deadly fighting. Suitably long for an advantage, but not so much as to be tangled in brush, the Pinute is fast and well able to chop a limb as it chops bamboo. The blade terminates in a vicious tip, making it quite suitable for a fatal thrust.

This Philippine-crafted Pinute has a sharp blade of 5160/D2 high carbon steel tempered to HRC 58-60. A simple guard and ferrule of darkened steel separate grip and blade. The grip is of carved wood with a brass nut on the pommel. A carved wooden scabbard with a blade-retaining clip is included. The metal clip ‘’locks’’ the blade in place by going over the lip of the guard. It can be released by a good tug on the grip.

Please Note: Due to being crafted in a tropical environment with native woods, it is common for these weapons to develop thin, minor cracks in the wood and the scabbard as the woods adjust to our more temperate environment. Cracks in items sent to you will not be harmful to the structural integrity of the item. Also - The decorative rattan wrapping can be brittle and may crack or break.

It is recommended that a light coating of protective oil is used to protect the wood from dryness and cracking.
