Interesting that the photo in the OP's ref. link of the Philippine Armed Forces use of the kris/kalis is actually of their Marines using their ginuntings, with their cross guard and knuckle bow...The photo file title also lists it as Phil Mar Reco (Philippine Marine Recon). A whole other kettle of fish. A 'tactical' black version below (they also come in polished and longer and also guardless or knucklebowless versions. No Brunei connection. Marketing puffing?
