I would agree that the blade is Sulu, but the whole thing was made in the 1950s up through today.

I would say close. This might in fact be Maguindanao based on the ganga, hilt, and scabbard top.

Xas the blade might be Maranao and nice to have a ganga separation line. I would say no later than the beginning of the 20th century, but more likely end of the 1800s or earlier.

However, the...

That pinning my well have bee by a US GI since Bagobo didn't traditionally do this. Usually no need for it.

Like Rick I too question the use of "kampilan". I also agree with Xasterix in that this is an unusual scabbard, almost looks like Moro "knock off" or a more recent Moro scabbard for this Bagobo...

Great examples and thank you GP for showing me those nicely worked brass scabbards and ferrules! One day when I grow up, I'll be able to replicate their quality of workmanship.

Congratulations...

Your example is nice. Hard to find these complete. The only thing is that your's is missing the other silver bands on the scabbard.

Still a nice example and thank you for posting it.

I would agree Rick that this is not a kampilan nor a datu class piece.

Datu glass pieces usually distinguish themselves by having lots of bead work on the scabbard.

Here is my example for...

I agree with Ian and will add:

1. This is a Maguindanao piece, not Maranao (based on the sale of the ganga and the scabbard).

2. This type of hilt I have seen on Malaysian keris called...

Actually this type of bell is not considered a tiger bell because the tiger bell has a "face" on it with eyes and a big mouth for an opening.

Amazing example! I would say that the blade is indeed Maguindanao. I don't see any evidence of suassa though.
