Default Unusual Batangas/Taal Knife--Philippines Probably WWII-era

A Taal sungot hipon (shrimp antenna) with the distinctive "JC" (Jesu Christo) mark stamped at forte. The blade is clean and sharp, and has a seven-inch swedge. Comes with original wooden scabbard.

This is an unusual style of knife from the Taal/Batangas area of Southern Luzon.

DIMENSIONS:
Blade 14.2"
Hilt 5.75"
OAL 19.6"
OAL (In scabbard) 21.25"
Blade thickness at hilt 0.25"

PRICE: $185.00, plus shipping from Australia


PLEASE NOTE:
  1. This large knife is being offered exclusively to Registered Members of the EAA Forum for a period of two weeks (after which time I will be placing it on eBay at a higher price). Contact me by PM if you are interested.
  2. Regrettably, I cannot accept offers from the Philippines for this knife. Owing to recent legal steps taken by the Philippines National Government, this knife would be confiscated by Philippines Customs if it were shipped there.
  3. Please contact me for shipping costs. I will ship within four days of settlement.
  4. Payment by PayPal only please.
