Originally, dual pointed with a carved hilt, these swords of the Moros of Sulu and Mindanao are carried by warriors who are in the first line of defense.
History shows a single swinging motion (like a baseball bat swing), can chop two heads ( what these swords are designed for) at a time. It is believed to be the longest sword carried by the Filipino warriors.
The handle is shaped like a jaw of reptile lizards and alligator makes this sword unique in appearance.
