It suddenly became a kard when I read Ariels post above that said Karud was an incorrect term. I'm just a collector, not a scholar, and was trying to be as correct as possible. :shrug:

Sorry,...

What did I buy? Borneo/Malaysion Kris blade?

Good day all. Found this on Ebay and the blade made me think of a couple of older small kris that I have. Wonder if it is made from a broken blade? The coin that forms the guard is from "British...

Battara,
Is it possible that the hilt is on backwards and the existing Baka-Baka is supposed to be on the other side? Since it's a unusual hilt style it may not look "off" to us. Don't some older...

I would like to inventory my collection for insurance and estate purposes. I plan to mark each piece and take a picture of it, then put it in a spreadsheet. Have any of you done this? If so, how do...

Nice one. As you say, from Panay in the Visayas. A similar one was my first piece from the Philippines, and started my addiction. :) It looks to be in fine condition!

I thought it was a Rencong, because of the direction and 90 degree curve of the handle. But I could find no pictures of Rencong with that type of handle. Looking forward to finding out more. I put in...

I don't think it is a stone head. Looks like iron or steel. I think I see grinder marks on the V-shaped cut outs. Could be wrong though. :shrug:

Nice!

Very nice piece Robert. Here is a punal I've had for some time. Sadly, it's missing a band on the scabbard. I don't think it's too old, but fairly well made.

I know little of Nihonto, but I know blades. Looks like the blade was polished on a buffer, and the "hamon" looks sand blasted, or etched. Hope I'm wrong.
