By any chance were the handles made of ivory or any other material from an endangered species or possibly confused for one?

I think that we are now all in agreement that the blade is Mexican or Central American and Jim did bring out an interesting point about the handle resembling that of the corvo knife from Chile, I...

And Another Colonial Spanish Sword;Mexican or Philippine ?

Another Short Sword of Colonial Spanish design;23" long. My first thought was Colonial Mexican, but I could be persuaded that it is Philippine.

The grouping seems somewhat strange to me; the shield looks Ethiopian and the armor on the top right (I'm 99.5% sure), is Japanese.

Thanks, Kai,
The blade measures 21" long and the handle measures 5"
I was thinking, maybe it could be carved out of wood or resin so that it would be a restoration of its former form, but, not...

Old Sundang with a Major Issue

This is a nice older Sundang, but as shown it has a major issue on the pommel. I have pretty much resigned myself to the fact that there isn't a fix; right or is there ???

The Barong is going into the collection and it will be hibernating there for many years(hopefully), with a barong that has a similar centipede blade design.
Hope to see you in Baltimore!

Kai,
On the red circles, it is lighting, but on the green circle, there is a chip and a piece about 1/16" split off and that is why you cannot see the scroll work. Great eyes, I missed that one...

Thanks Kai.
Those possibilities also came to my mind; that is why I feel that the blade and the silver ferrule are original and the other components could be later add-ons or modifications. The metal...

Interesting Barong for Comment.

I recently picked this up at auction. It has a nice blade with the reoccurring centipede motif with a silver ferrule, however, I'm not too sure of the metal wrap on the handle. Is this a more recent...

Two Cutlasses, but from where ?

The first one (made by A.E.Holler), I've narrowed it down to 2 possibilities; Prussian or Sardinian. I had previously thought these to be Prussian, but I have found several auction houses that have...

Thank you for your input; the Fijian was listed as 20th century, so maybe WW2 or a little earlier? It is massive and made of a very heavy dense wood, so I don't think it is a "tourist piece," if no...
