Filipino style sword and knife by HellfireForge Filipino style sword and knife by HellfireForge
These were a custom order for a matched set. He wanted a metal pommel instead of an all wood handle as a skullcrusher on each.

Brother! Excellent work! What would a set similar to this cost me from your shop?

Yeah. The guy who ordered them wanted something traditional for the most part, but asked for pointed steel skull crusher pommels.

Thanks. The point on the sword is quite nasty. Slip between ribs like a champ Id bet.

These are insanely cool, I love the shape and lines of the blades and grips. Is the gap between the end of the blade and the top of the handle functional or just a style thing?

It was just how the guy who ordered it wanted. I looked at a lot of other filipino style blades and they had bolsters like that as well. Only thing I changed from the traditional construction was he wanted the steel skull crusher pommel. Normally they would have been 3/4 tang with a pin through it.

Forge the blades, carve the handles out of wood and stick them all together. Thats the abridged version.

One cannot fathom how badly I want to learn how to do this.

Big hurdle is the tools. If you have access to a shop or the means to put one together, with the internet all the info you could need to learn is available out there somewhere. You can make a decent blade with a surprisingly small amount of tools,even without power tools if you dont mind the labor.

What tools, exactly?

Depends, you need to figure out if you want to forge, or stock remove. A good book to start with on the subject is called the complete bladesmith by Jim Hrisoulas.
