Default Pre-WWII Visayan tenegre for sale

Nice old tenegre with unusually long blade and carved wooden guard. This one is in "as found" condition except for a light cleaning of the blade to remove some superficial rust. The blade remains sharp and has been oiled at regular intervals. The hilt has no chips and comes with a nicely carved bakunawa head. Probably dates from the early 20th C, but may be older.

OAL = 28.5 inches
Blade = 23 inches
Hilt = 5.5 inches


Price: US$ 300 + shipping via AusPost (I will pay insurance). Paypal only please.

Item ships from Australia. I do not ship to China, Russia, or Ukraine. Shipping to the Philippines is at the owner's risk--it is possible the item would be confiscated under recent legislation passed by the Philippines National Government.

Please contact me via PM or email at igreaves(at)temple(dot)edu

Default In response to questions ...

Here is a picture showing the thickness of the blade (0.25 inch) near the guard, and the composition of the ferrule which is made from a strip of brass (seam is apparent in the picture below). Years of grime from handling cover the ferrule.
