These single guard Visayan knives are taken from Sonny’s original carving.
Finder-Umpad knife, which adds an upper guard for superior grip and protection.
Two sizes shown, for different grip preferences, based on same template.
Like my swords, these are carved from solid ˝” thick plastic using a high-speed pin router table. They then go through various stages of filing, sanding and buffing to create a balanced, comfortable and attractive trainer. On all my edged trainers, the blades are polished and handles are either satin finished or carved for better grip.
