This blade is similar to the most of Katipunan Bolos of the north, usually with belly near the piercing tip. The Tenegre came from Panay Island in the Visayan region of the Central Philippines. With its wide belly and downward pitch to the angle of the blade, this well-designed bolo weapon hits hard, but is easily maneuverable with quick strikes CORRECT The handle grip is an ebony hardwood with an unusual image carved and cast with alloy along with the ferrule. The scabbard is intricately carved. Hand tempered high carbon steel blade stays sharp and will easily cut through thickness.
