Kalahi Custom Blades provides fully functional swords, with an organic artisan build unrivaled in this industry.
I bought the Ginunting, then the Panabas. The visual of the beautiful crafted wood scabbards and handles, is very striking. Great weight and balance, you can feel the striking point as an extension of the body. Only when they are in your hand, will you realize the artistry that goes into these beautiful pieces of art and will handle any situation that may arise.
Kalahi is a rare Diamond in this Industry where you have Functionality, Artistry, backed by a Master Practitioner of FMA in PM Allan Fami.
I most certainly will be a return buyer!

I received my Ginunting today and was happy about it. Good quality and great product. I am planning to order some more and will let you know once I have decided what for the quote.
Thank you very much and pleasure doing business with you.

Back in May of 2017 I messaged Kalahi Customs about ordering 2 ginunting blades. One Tactical Ginunting and one custom Ginunting knife with my initials. I planned to visit the Philippines and also planned to visit Kalahi Customs to pick up the blades. They were very helpful and responsive to every question I had regarding the blades.
When I finally visited the Philippines I planned to visit their shop in Caloocan. Sir Allan was very helpful in guiding me to their shop.
The blades I ordered came out flawless. The craftsmanship and detail of both blades are awesome. I will definitely come back to them for more blades.

the opportunity to stumble KCB’s Facebook page while looking for swords
to train with, I already have an Espada y Daga set (purchased from a
different seller), but still wish to have more swords to use. As a first
time buyer, I do have doubts
if this company is legit, but based on their client’s reviews, I have
to take the risk. I sent them a picture of what sword that I liked and
have some little discussions concerning the product.
My sword came a little bit late (honestly, but I shrug that off since this is not their fault) Came in a tall cardboard box, wrapped in delivery company’s packaging tape. Inside is my sword in cased in bubble wrap plastic. What surprised me is the scabbard; they actually made me a kamagong scabbard! From the agreed price, I wasn’t expecting one; I thought I’m going to have the lame synthetic leather one.
The Blade: Pure 21 inches length of Carbon Steel Goodness, probably 1.5 inch width and the thickness? GOOD (Hey, I’m satisfied with my sword; I don’t care about exact measurements if I’m smiling here) Miss Karen was concerned that It would be high maintenance, but they actually placed the fun in cleaning, I could actually feel the dents of the hammer blows as my cloth slides across the steel, I could actually do this all day. I requested that this would be blunt, but KCB brought my expectations to the extreme, unlike my first Espada y Daga set where as if they just pass a metal file for a “fake” edge, KCB actually grinded the edge, making other spectators to double-take a look at my weapon
Handle Length: 8 Inches (built for two-handed wielding) smooth kamagong handle with a heavy pommel
I didn’t mention this to Miss Karen when I ordered, but I should say it
is way thicker than my Espada y Daga’s which is a big plus
Made from Kamagong, An inch longer than my blade. I can easily
unsheathe with little effort, but has a firm grip that whenever held
upside-down, the sword won’t loosely come off, comes with (leather?)
belt slot and handle flaps which is I have to say that the tacks are
really sturdy despite from continous locking-and-unlocking
The sword still has the Philippine Ginunting “Feel” to it despite the modifications of handle length. The sword is heavy for someone like me that has a small built, but I have been training with my Kamagong Baston so that is of no concern.
Overall, I am Happy with my new “toy”, and been playing with it for days. I can’t see why some of their customers are not happy. It would even take me a while to think of migrating to a new sword. And they would be expecting an order of a Daga to pair for this baby. I’m naming this sword Turtle Fang
The Bottom Line
I would recommend this to my Filipino Martial Arts Group (Negros Kali International) and even to FMA and sword enthusiasts.
