Thought Motan, that the Ottomans ruled in fact and later in name from the 16th to the 20th centuries. Thus an Ottoman dagger might have been considered Egyptian.

I love this!

I love your use of mokume copper as well and the way you etched it to give that worn feel on the scabbard. Also I like the scalloping of the end of the blade. The hammered and...

Interesting piece. Looks like it could also be made from white metal/white bronze. Nice.

Yeah, I'm thinking more Thai or Burmese.

Also, some times these "Chinese" marks are not Chinese at all but placed to look like it came from a Chinese smith to raise the value of the blade itself, just like "Andrea Ferrara" on Scottish...

This is an unusual barong Christian. But I do like the engraved floral design on the blade, which looks more Visayan to me. I also wonder about the hilt - not typical Tausug style.

You have a rare piece there.

I think the "Lurban" might actually be "Lucban" as in Gral or General Lucban/Lukban. This looks to be made during the beginning of the Philippine-American War...

Here are pictures of a nearly identical piece for comparison. I would place the blade at possibly being Maguindanao, or a cross of Maguindanao and Sulu:

I would also say Ottoman Balkan with other influences. The bottom "rat's tail" one might be from Albania?
