Amazing collection! One of the best I've seen so far. May we inquire for more info regarding the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th samples? The 6th sample seems extra interesting as it has provenance note.

Great samples sir Kino! I'm curious about the bottom kampilan. I think it's only the second or third time I've seen that type.

I think everyone who's into Bangsamoro traditional blades enjoy the shared pictures and posts on the "...show us your barung" topic. I've been browsing for kampilan pics and info on this site, and I...

Very fine keris sir! And happy holidays indeed. How old would something like this be? I'm curious as I'm not that privy to keris info.
