Carabao horn dulo-dulo

Just a review: 

A dulo dulo is one of the weapons in Filipino Martial Arts and it is used to slash or stab an enemy.  It is light, handy, and legal to carry anywhere. 

In Filipino, dulo, means “end” or “tip”. Dulo-dulo translates as “end to end” or “tip to tip” (or sometimes, it can also be loosely translated as “two ends” or “two tips”).

 So here I have a weapon grabbed in the middle and has a point on each side of the fist.

At 5.5 inches, this one fits me but actually, it’s smaller than usual
(I think the usual is about 7 inches)

This was a gift from Rene, one of my classmates in Arnis. His brother who lives in Masbate, Philippines works in a carabao slaughterhouse.  Ohh, sorry about that. But at least, I have a remembrance…

      Hello Joe. I got mine from one of my master’s students. I think he still has some more. But there are online stores that also sell them. Where are you based?
