Honest Kaskara to share.

I think that this is an honest older Kaskara sword that is a little bit unusual in that it is not of the flat wide blade type, but more of a stout "European type," cavalry sword blade (even though I...

It is the same with me; however, there is always that first one. The other side is not marred, so maybe that excludes a vise?

Philippine Cutlass with "Maker's Mark," or "vise grip scratches?"

Some interesting pictures of the Philippines,etc.

Here are some interesting pictures of the Philippines, 1934 through 1945; most interesting are the soldiers with the sundang. Each picture is captioned, however, they are out of order.
