The Filipino kris is an iconic sword in history of martial arts.
The kris blade (also called kriss, cryss, keris), is instantly recognizable by the waves of the blade, the specialized guard, and ergonomic handle. This design makes it truly versatile giving the user the options to both thrust and slash with efficacy.
The training polymer kris is designed by Tuhon Rafael Kayanan, based on years of research of Filipino history, as well as actual weapons archives to understand the different aspects of this weapon. These training blades are hand-made and crafted to give them a look, feel, and finish that make them some of the most unique training blades you can find on the market today.
The kris has recently gained some awareness in popular culture with Disney’s upcoming animated film, Raya, The Last Dragon.
