I would also go with Sri Lanka.

As an aside, the third individual from the left in the front row appears to show the typical features of achondroplasia dwarfism.

The Afghan attribution seems to be correct. This afternoon I was sent pictures of a similar sword by one of the many sword enthusiasts who come to this site anonymously. The sword has the mark of the...

Hi Asian:

Short answer—I think it is. N. Borneo or the Sultanate of Brunei would be my guess. I have not seen a similar hilt on a barung. The structure of the hilt, with silver pieces interspersed...

Hello Alex:

Welcome to the Forum.

I believe you have a very nice example of a Filipino knife from Central or Northern Luzon, probably dating from the Revolutionary War period at the end of the...

Hi David.

Nice old kris. The blade is likely 19th C. although you will know more after giving it a clean. The hilt looks like it is late 19th or early 20th C. The hilt might be a replacement....

Jim has suggested, very reasonably, that the present discussion has reached an impasse. The original title of this thread seems very apt. An odd recent discussion indeed.

Hi Michael:

Nice kris you have there. Probably from the Maguindanao people on the island of Mindanao, and made at the end of the 19th C. or early 20th C.

Hi Chief,

Nice restoration and cleaning. I agree that keeping the braided rings would have been more in keeping how it looked in the original culture, but the whipped black cord looks very...

Detlef,

It would seem that nobody else has one of these to show. The thin bolster seems unusual. Also, the place name and date remind me of the Tjikeroeh swords and knives of the late 19th C. and...

Hello xasterix:

Thank you for this question about Moro hilts. I have to admit I've not heard the term "budbud" before. Perhaps you could tell us where you found it.

If I understand your...

Possible WWII-era U.S. Army knife from Accra

I have had this knife for many years and wondered how it may have ended up with its stamped attribution. At forte there appears (stamped rather crudely):

Hi kino:

Thanks for the link to your chevron-bladed kris. As noted by several commenters in that thread it is a very unusual kris and possibly not of Moro origin--perhaps Malay. The largest extant...

I agree with much of what you have said, although I do stand by my statement that a wootz blade on a Moro weapon would be exceedingly rare. Moro weapons are often etched, so such a pattern...

I think your kris is Maranao in origin from the late 19th C., one of the "heavy-bladed" forms favored on Mindanao during that period and into the early 20th C. The striped banati wood...
