Ian, yes. but the okir runs all the way to the point.
I wonder if the two krisses and the Kampilan came from the same maker.

Kino, do you have any guesses as to the age of this blade? I have a Kris (no gonjo) with almost the same okir work running down the center; I'm pretty sure it's 20thC work but pre-WW2 or post?

I've been to the San Blas islands; the Kuna are very interesting and nice people.
I never saw any clubs there but I did see lots of beautifully made Molas.

Reading this reminded me of a visit to Frogner Park in Oslo where there is an incredible display of Gustav Vigeland's statues. :)

The first look at these sitting on a flea market table did it for me. I expect they're fakes from China.

I agree. Looks like it might be a can of worms.
Once stripped that rattan weaving may need to be replaced; and then what do you end up with; a refurbished antique?

This thickening that you speak of Detlef is not present in the blade of my example which is almost identical to yours but a bit shorter at 27 inches overall.

Nice find; we don't see many of this...

Superstition

First day of the month before you say anything you say rabbit rabbit rabbit for good luck. I believe it's English in origin and likely dates back to the 15th century.

Interesting that C.A.'s hilt is the only one that has stippling. That must have been done by hand after casting.

That 'richly decorated' Paiwan knife near the bottom of the page is a picture I took of one that was in my possession. :)
I have since sold it on.

I like file work on a blade. Unfortunately I have no antique examples to show. It surely adds a little class to the look of the knife. :)

Smile Very Nice!

It looks like the decorative file work was only applied to one side of the spine.
Can we see a shot looking downward at this feature please?

Honestly; it looks like something made for sale to 'those who travel for pleasure' and a rather poor example of such an object to boot.

Could this have been attached to the breast piece of a horse harness where the three straps meet? It would seem about the proper size for this. :shrug:
