Pair of Blades in 5160 Spring Steel - the Espada y Daga
This blade is commonly called buneng ken kutsilyo (sword and knife) usually used for “pangkayas” (for scrapping) in the Ilocos region; its smaller width and tapering blade shape releases vibration after impact on wood (for example, bamboo). The influence in design of Spain’s Espada Ancha is evident on overall look of the blade. The use of this blade in martial arts is traced to the movements of the European fencing that the Spaniards called “Escrima”. The Filipinos’ study of the offensive movements evolved sword-and-knife techniques for fighting systems called Arnis and Eskrima in long, middle, and long range encounters.
