Kris swords are popular in fantasy. Something about the undulating blade seems to appeal to our inner geek. Unlike many fantasy swords that have European or Arabic origins, the kris is actually an Asian one, and, more specifically, a Philippines one.

This fully tempered, full tang, sharpened and battle-ready kris is perfect for both fantasy-play or martial arts cutting. Or fantasy martial arts cutting, if you want to get crazy. The design is based on the Filipino kalis, and if you hadn’t noticed from the pictures, it is *stunning.*

Like most kalis, the ornamented guard on this one blends almost seamlessly with the blade. The forte of the blade is pierced on one side, for decoration and a lighter weight, and curls into a back-facing thorn on the other side. A brass stirrup helps secure the rippled blade to the hilt and provides an elegant dash of color. The hardwood hilt is wrapped in leather and finished with embellished brass plating and a carved-wood pommel.

But the master smiths that worked on this sword didn’t just stop at the blade. Oh, no, dear reader. Because a work-of-art like this can’t be stuffed into a standard sheath. A showpiece like this must have a scabbard worthy of it. The wooden sheath for this weapon is made from stained Pacific timber, banded with braided cord at the collar, tip and midpoint for that extra flair.

Although this sword is gorgeous, it is not a wall-hanger. It has been hand-forged by smiths, tempered, sharpened, and tested for hardness and durability. Swords in this line are used by martial arts masters for cutting practice and competitions. And, when they get a little crazy, for fantasy martial arts cutting practice and competitions.
