The favorite weapon of the Visayan warriors of Cebu and nearby islands in the Phillipines is the single edged pinuti short sword. These training/practice pinuti are made in the US from 1/4" thick 6061-T6 structural grade aircraft aluminum. Hollow-ground brushed finish gives it the correct look of a sharpened weapon, a feature rare in aluminum training blades (which usually look like cut out slabs of aluminum, rather than like the weapons they simulate.) The handle is wrapped in black 3mm rigging cord for a firm non-slip grip.
