Talibong – The “Talibon” or “Talibong” sword’s exaggerated belly indicates its uniqueness. This sword was seen in the Luzon and the Visayan region of the Philippines during the later part of the Spanish era to the early American regime. Used for mostly for combat purposes but doubled when need for hunting and cutting up meat. This sword’s shape can cut through grass easily (while hunting animals) and slaughter the game when caught. The handle used to be simple and ordinary until it was modified by the Filipinos to be used more as a weapon during the later part of the Spanish era. The handle was designed to protect the fingers from getting cut during an encounter.
