Carlos -

I guess it could be Filipino, but the work looks more European to me. Nice looking knives where ever it is from.

I guess what throws me is that hilt looks more like a post WWII leg or bed finial. Brass ferrule looks new also. Cross guard - silver?

Still could be PI though. If it really is, could be Ilokano.

Hello Migueldiaz, A very nice looking dagger you have there. Could you show a picture of the end of the hilt and is the wood of the hilt painted or stained?

Hi Robert! It's actually Seņor Carlos who owns the dagger :) But I'm interested also in seeing more pics of the dagger.

Hm, isnt Dagger no.11 a flyssa dagger? it seems to even have the kabyle decoration aswell.

DGuertin 21st April 2011 08:35 PM

#11 to me looks like some North African hybrid of a flyssa and a Nimcha, or something similar. The specific hilt is familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
