The PANABAS https://www.samuraikatanaswordphilippines.com/apps/photos/ The PANABAS The PANABAS Blade: 19.75" / Overall: 34", The Panabas is a large, forward-curved sword, used by certain ethnic groups in the southern Philippines. It can range in size from 2 to 4 feet and can be held with one or both hands, delivering a deep, meat cleaver-like cut.[1] In its heyday, it was used as a combat weapon, as an execution tool, and as a display of power. Occasional use as an agricultural and butchering tool has also been noted.[2] The sword's name is a shortening of the word "pang-tabas", which means "chopping tool". As such, its etymological origins are the root word tabas ("to chop off") and the prefix pang ("used for").
