I wonder.

I never understood why Kampilans are next to non existent in Basilan when they're in constant contact with Kampilan making tribes and groups from Borneo and Mainland Borneo.

That never...

To Ian, Kai, Kino, Sajen and Rick.

Would you like to know where the claim that Visayan blades are brittle, breakable as glass, poorly made? Why ShazamsLaw made a thread like this, and why I made...

Kampilans in Basilan?

Hi All! Another question.

Were Kampilans in use, or ever made by the groups in Basilan? Namely the Yakan, Tausug and Bajaw there.

Because from all my research, it appears that the Moro Kampilans...

Origin of these Kampilans? Moro or Bagobo?

Okay, so I found two Kampilan pieces from this site:

That claimed these two Kampilans are of BAGOBO origin. The Mindanao Tribe that is...

Agricultural Luzon and Visayas Panabas?

Hi All!

I've been browsing through websites on many types of Visayan bolos when I came across this gem.

A picture of what the uploader claims, what appears to be agricultural counterparts of the...

Opinion?

What makes the blade obviously Visayan and original, in my opinion, is that the Kris Blade is straightly erected and aligned to the handle, as opposed to the Moro Kris. Kris's like this is something...

Which is the Longest Type of Bolo?

Would anyone happen to guess which type of Ethnographic Bolo from the Philippines was the longest?

I am trying to inquire for further research.

It seems the Minasbad is the longest alongside the...

Did Lumads make their own Kampilans?

Hi! Back again..

I was wondering if the Lumads made their own Kampilans and not just refit Moro Kampilan with new hilts, and if so, how did they get the steel material? Did they trade it with...

Origin of the Modern Ginunting?

I've been looking up the connection between the Modern/Military/Recon/Marine Ginunting to the more heavy and "traditional" Binangon/Ginunting Bolo as well as the story to how the Modern Ginunting...

It seems that Luzon Bolos have too much western influences on their design, to the point that I think I can't deem it "Filipino" anymore in my opinion. But just Spanish short swords made by...

Where did Moros get their Metals to make their blades (all time periods)

More amateur questions,

I've read a claim that Moros, before the times of the Hispanic era and during it to now, had pretty much made all their blades out of steel and never iron.

And then there is...

Forging/Design Differences between Luzon, Visayan and Mindanao made Kampilans?

Two amateur questions:

1. I read on some articles a while back, and a few posts from some forums and youtube comment sections that Kampilans that Visayans and Luzonese made had profile and design...

Quotes from other websites that speak of the Lugod / Filipino Karambit

I just researched back, and culled up some quotes from other websites and forums like fmatalk that discussed the existence of the Lugod (Filipino Karambit) and everyone seriously seems to act like...

Traditional Filipino adaptation of a "Karambit"

I think you guys are right.

This "Thai Pra" blade design IS strikingly close to a Moro Panabas, it's nearly impossible that there is no link between them. I do find it interesting that every culture...

Does there exist a counterpart or predecessor of the Moro Panabas in Indonesia?

Another amateur question, one that's been on my mind.

I noticed that almost every indigenous blade in the Philippines has a counterpart in Indonesia or Malaysia today, but with a notable exception,...

There's an uploaded photo by a sword collecting user, of a Dha looking sword with a scabbard scribbled with Baybayin alphabet writing. Claiming it to be a Filipino Dha sword.

The theory is that this...

How Strong are Luzon and Visayan Blades

I've been seeing claims around some forums that Luzon and Visayan Blades are so weak, that they are made of incredibly soft iron, that they break after a few uses and that even Aztec wooden weapons...
