Kalinga Headhunter Axe – Philippines Bontoc Igorot Tribal Weapon.
The Kalinga axe is a weapon unique to the indigenous peoples of the Cordillera Mountain Range of northern Luzon, Philippines and comes in slightly alternating shapes. Distinguished by its wide curved edge, pointed ends, and a stub located two-thirds of the way down the shaft for grip – the weapon bears unique qualities.
Typically used in battle, therefore, it is sometimes referred to as a battle axe. This Kalinga axe is an absolutely beautiful piece for display and in very good condition, a collectors dream. The wooden haft is embellished with punched brass-work, with long iron ferrule and finely-modeled and embellished shape.
The video below focuses on a Bontoc Axe but will also show another variation.
