Thank you Ren Ren.

The second character that you speak of “rou”, could be loosely interpreted as “hand forged”.

Chinese? Calligraphy.

Does it make any sense? Someone said it means “good”, “correct”, but others said it didn’t make any sense.
The bottom one that’s etched, seems too elaborate to mean nothing.

Thanks.

Thanks you for moving it David.

Kai, I thought Visayas because the blade profile was somewhat like a
Garab, but....not quite.

Ian, the blade does have a chisel grind.

Overall length is 25”, blade length 19.25”.
Blade is laminated, not peeled at the top the hilt. Hilt is carved out of Carabao horn. I’m guessing the teeth and fangs are bone. Handle and ferrule are...

That's nice.
How thick is the blade nearest the hilt? How's the blade constructed, pattern welded? Mono steel?
Thanks for sharing.

The pommel can be classified as a kakatua.
Blade has 5 waves, limaseko.
Battara has already addressed the twist-core question.

If you’ve seen the rigors that Xasterix puts his swords thru during test cuttings you’d see why he uses epoxy in place of pitch 🙂

Hi Ian, did your hilt have the tenon as opposed to a mortise like Tanaruz’ hilt?

Is the pommel solid silver or does it have a wood core?

It looks nice. Good job Jose!

Nice find, 3 swords with scabbards to boot. I agree with your age assessments.

It's good that you're bringing them back to working order. By your description, they're wicked sharp.

It's too narrow to be a remounted N.Philippine spear blade.

Here’s a dagger from the Philippines that has a similar blade profile. Like Shayde78’s dagger, the scalloped edges are unsharpened.

Xasterix, I saw how this Kris cuts, pretty sharp blade. I like the way you tested it.
Did this Kris come with the hilt or did you have it commissioned?

I like the blades pattern welding. Smart decision on not grinding out the big chip, if you did, it would look funny.
I mirror Victrix’s comments.

What happened to this Barung

This Barung has been living with me for over 15 years. Fits nicely in the scabbard.
There’s a big dent on the blades right side.

What happened?
