The estimated origin of the sundang can be traced back to the fifteenth century, when Mindanao and the Sulu islands were tributary states of the Javanese Majapahit Kingdom (1292–1500). In the early stage of development the sundang, it functioned primarily as a symbolic weapon, and was valued as a sacred pusaka heirloom item. Through the course of time, the sundang gained a much more practical function; it soon became a weapon used for combat, and served the purpose of a genuine pedang sword.
