I agree Charles: the one with a guard - the guard and ferrule both are Visayan. Not too shocking though since Mindanao Moros (Maranao, Maguindanao) live at the bottom of the Visayas.

I don't know Detlef, I kind of agree with Wayne. I have noticed that black oxidation is much more stable and have not had problems with it for years.

Now there is a point, however, that in order...

Thanks Detlef!

Yeah I saw the potential too. :D

I am firming up what I have learned about the differences between the Visayan styles and the Ilokano styles of wavy blades.

However, I am beginning to run out of room. But this does mesh my love for ethnographic textiles and ethnographic weaponry together. :D

Yeah - early 20th - WWII Japanese swords often had them. However, these are not typical Japanese style chrysanthemums.

Thank you folks! :D


I did a little comparison to other Ilokano daggers and am now of the opinion that this is indeed Ilokano.

However, that third one does...
