Samoan Fire Knives are implements that resemble a hooked blade with wicks on both end. The wicked material is soaked in liquid fuel and lit on fire as part of cultural or ceremonial dances. Historically, the blades were made out of machete's which were twirled and tossed around the body either as a single knife or in pairs. The Samoan "Ailao" or knife dance was a pre-war ritual that displayed skill and bravery. Fire Knife is still taught today, and competitions are held annually in Hawaii, California and Samoa.
Our Fire Knives are made from carbon steel that has been heat treated to a temper finish to increase flexibility and resist bending. Each blade is attached with hardened steel roll pins to an 1" aluminum tubing shaft to ensure stability.
