Hi drac.

Highly atypical of Spanish-Filipino styles in regard to the hilt with a finger loop, and the tooled leather scabbard is also atypical of Filipino work. I agree with the comments of Detlef...

Jose and I have been talking about this hilt offline for a few days. The sword is a very nice example of Ilokano bladesmithing and the hilt is clearly first rate too. As far as rings on the finger of...

Sorry to come to this one late. We've been under extreme heat and bushfire alerts here, with not much time to read the forum.

Hi Rob:

These are two recurved knives/swords, and resemble a yataghan in that way, but I think that is where the similarity ends. Recurved blades are found in many cultures, probably reflecting...

Hi Ariel:

This appears to be an Ilokano piece from N. Luzon. It probably falls into the general category of a dahong palay, a well recognized Ilokano blade form that has been discussed on this...
