Hi All. I was very fortunate to be given a training blade to sell by my Master, GM Yuli Romo. It is a type of pira sword made by hand by GM Yuli. It has a 21" blade and the total length is 30". As you can see the aluminium has been given a painstakingly buffed finish. This really helps to make the training sword look like the real thing. It also helps stop finger prints getting on it as opposed to other aluminum weapons that use the mirror finish. The wood for the pommel is "Barayong" and I must admit I don't know much about it apart from it being a very rare wood now in the Philippines. A similar Pira can be seen in this picture on the right. I thought I'd offer it to FMA talk members before sticking it on Ebay, If you are interested please PM me an offer. I will ship it worldwide by Airmail. I am currently editing the videos of GM with the sword and will add to this thread when I'm finished. Simon.
