This spear is called the pahul by the Ifugao, which holds a symbolic meaning aside from its use as a hunting weapon. The pahul shows the authority of the male owner and is displayed prominently when the group gathers to hunt. This spear has two barbs, with all edges pointed. Its tang juts and is inserted into the wider neck of the hardwood handle. A metal sheet wrapped around the hardwood end and reinforced with an iron nail ensures that the metal head is safely fastened.
