The translations of both are not very different from each other. For a scholar, having both at hand would be good.

Hi Robert,

The spear appears to be Ifugao. It is called "ludit" in the vernacular.

Best regards,

I have recently learned that the term "pinahhig" is a long-bladed bolo with a sharp edge. This is a Tuwali Ifugao word. Note the double "h"

Like I said earlier, the workmanship looks familiar to me. It was crafted to look old and used, and was made for no other purpose but for sale. Sorry to say this.

Hi Udo,

Does it have a strong smell of smoke? The workmanship leads me to suspect that it was made by the Ifugao.

I was wondering if the use of olive or linseed oil on wood is a recommended practice by conservationists in museums.

Hi Robert, I do not use linseed or olive oil and therefore have no observations on their effect.

Hi Robert,

Taking off dust by use of a brush is a basic step for me. Next is a ren wax treatment, unless the shield is too delicate in which case no treatment is made.

Hi Robert,

Likely that was used to stabilize a spear when held with the same hand as the shield.

Hi Bill,

Obviously, religion had much to do with the outcome. The Spaniards had a religion well suited for conquest, unlike that of those who were conquered. The religion of the natives controlled...

Hi Detlef,

Unfortunately, I am unable to give a precise figure because I am currently not home for the next couple of months. But I would estimate around 3.0 mm near the handle.

Thanks Detlef and Jose.

The knife and the scabbard have a museum number on them, and likely came together when they were accessioned some time in the past.

Hi Kai,

I am not familiar with the origin of the scabbard, but assume that it was likely not rare nor special at that time. This "bangkung" was likely a farm or chopping tool and perhaps did not...
