Igorot Panabas?

In the photo, the Igorot in the middle seems to have a Panabas shaped weapon standing right next to him.
I guess this kind of shows that the technology among the moros were really not different than...

Do you know of any books or sources that refer to 3 feet long swords used by the Visayans or the animists in Luzon? The only thing I could fine was Henry William Scotts "Barangay" which claimed that...

Hi Ian,

It is true, the angle could possible make the sword like bigger in length. However in regards to the kampilan above, it seems the specimen is still up to debate on whether it is a Visayan...

I believe the Kampilan posted by Carlos however is of Visayan origin. I am not sure if this is a tourist made one or a kampilan from a time before the coming of the Americans (or maybe even Spanish)...

This may be the first Visayan Kampilan I've come across (if this really is visayan made).

Ancient visayan kampilan?

This may be possible the very first visayan made kampilan that has surfaced. Assuming of course this was pre ww2/ww1.

Shorter? The sizes the kampilan usually comes in, is 36-48 inches (3-4ft) in length. Quite odd that the kris was evidently used in the Visayans while the the Kampilan is still a theory. Although, The...

Now that I think about it, I've never seen a visayan timawa with a large sword like that before. Possibly this may be the Visayan kampilan that I'm looking for, although seems a lot different from...

Origin of the Balisong?

The oldest knife I know which looks like a balisong is dated from the end of the 18th century (179?). It's called "Pied Du Roy". I found it in a Cutlery Museum in France.

Moro

I'd figure that the kampilan was mostly made by the moros while the ones seen in the Visayas and luzon regions were imported from Mindanao, no?

Although the kampilan is said to have been imported to parts of the visayan and luzon islands, is the Kampilan for the most part exclusive to the moros, as the katana is exclusive to Japan.

Import

I'm pretty sure those weapons were imported and weren't really made locally, not to mention how very rare it was for them to use it. So the use of a panabas was probably not that significant enough...
