Vintage Ilocano Knife Sinan Kapitan Gen Antonio Luna hand crafted; Brass; Unique:

Vintage Ilocano Sinan Kapitan Knife; acquired from local retired Air Force officer estate; estimated to be mid 20th century; appears to be hand produced and of better quality than the mass produced examples that can be found online with much less detail in the hilt carving; without a brass guard or brass inlays to carving; less detailed sheath and lessor quality blade. Some additional background on this type of knife and history can be easily found online.

  • Knife is Ilokano (Ilocano) in manufacture, probably from Ilocos Sur. The hilt is called a sinan kapitan or Antonio Luna. The sheath is also typical Ilokano work.
  • Antonio Luna was a Revolutionary War hero, and General of the Philippine Army in the Philippines-American War at the end of the 19th C. You can find more history about these knifes online and in ethnographic arms and armor forums.

SOLD AS IS WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL PAPERWORK RELATED TO KNIFE or SHEATH PROVENANCE. Context of knife history based on purchase from local estate and additional estate related possessions.
