Kris Sword, Cold Steel

The Filipino islands are widely known for their vast assortment of edged weapons. There is a wide assortment of Kris swords styles to choose from as each island, region or clan has its own favorite with some putting more emphasis on cutting while others favour styles more conducive for thrusting.

The blades of Cold Steels Kris are made from 1055 carbon steel with a hard spring temper. They are satin polished and come fully sharpened. In profile, the Kris blades feature a moderately undulating blade shape with three concave curves and a long, descending spear point found on almost all Kris swords. This blade shape strikes a good balance between cutting power and thrusting ability. The base of the blades terminate in traditional, decorated “file cut” flanges with the shorter protecting the finger and the longer protecting the thumb wrist and lower forearm.

The classic handles emphasize strength and durability over fashion. Hand carved out of exotic Sal hardwood, they’re wrapped with wire, and embellished with a brass bolster. Every Kris comes with an equally sturdy and practical scabbard.
