Yeah i was thinking the same thing......That it would be so diluted that it would take some time to work. And yes, i imagine it would be a sugary mess if it worked at all. I just went out into the...

Very nice collection, especially the panabas. they seem to be one of the hardest of the moro pieces to find. I can't believe some of the prices they are asking for some of the ones on...

Nacho: I think this might be mine, that i posted a few years ago though i can't be 100 percent sure. Seems to me someone else posted one like this a while back.................Dave.

Chris: Two great looking twist-cores. You did really good. I think both would go late 1800s to very early 1900s. Can't do much better than that. Haven't seen you since the Pasadena Knife Show. ...

Oliver: I don't know. Somehow to my eye anyway, a Murut hilt just does not look anything like a campilon hilt. I'll have to dig out the pakayun i have and take another good look..........Dave.

Gold inlaid tulwar

Yes, i've not seen inlays that either. Not sure if they might not represent the moon with stars. Also the handle has what looks to be a gold eye with eyelashes..........Dave.
