The ink inscription on the sheath is frustratingly unclear in the picture. Can you read it more clearly by direct inspection?

Hi Detlef:

Very interesting presentation of this sword type and yours adds some slight variations from the others but definitely in the same family. What nationality are the coins?

Hi RM:

Welcome to the Forum! You did fine in your posting of pics, etc.

Nice example of the utility knife found in mainland SE Asia. Mainly used for cutting rattan, but also a general purpose knife. I've seen these in Thailand and Laos, and they are said to be...

Hi Carlos:

Interesting dagger. The scabbard certainly looks Filipino to me, and is typical of Central and Northern Luzon where Ilokano influence is strongest. The stitching down the center of the...

I think Jim is right that this may well be a colonial daga. I don't think it is Filipino because the hilt is very unusual for Ilokano work and they produced most of these style daggers coming from...

Late 19th C Moro kampilan

Very nice old kampilan with leather wrapped hilt and no guard (may never have had one). The blade tapers evenly and gradually to the tip, which shows the typical kampilan spike. The blade has a nice...

Hi Leif:

Nice addition to your collection. I think 1930s or a little later would be about right for this one. The pictures that you show do suggest that the hilt could be made of celluloid...
