Actually just the opposite. One can hammer in more details into softer metal than harder metal like brass. Again this observation and personal experience in metalworking.

An observation:

Brass is much harder to work versus copper, silver, or gold. Great detail can be made through these other metals. But brass, even when very thin, can be worked in detail, but not...

Xasterix and Ian, I was thinking of that exact same steropicture when you mentioned the suspension.

Not to be argumentative, but I have seen a Laoag wavy dagger with the 1st Republic emblem on it have a leather scabbard with a brass top and bottom chape on it which matched the brass quillions.

Just a side note, Gustav's Moro hilt looks like it comes from Tawi-Tawi. Their hilts are made in this fashion.

Also Sajen is right - I've done a couple of Tawi-Tawi hilts before and it is a lot of...

It maybe recently made. Yes the casting is terrible and what is worse is that patina in the crevices is missing.

Also the touch hole - it looks too crisp. These were also used as signal cannons. ...

Uh..........maybe a little over etched. You may want to repolish and etch with a little distilled water, or don't leave the blade in that long.

Yes a little. A little patina can accentuate the filigree work as well as keep the signature of age and dating.

The bottom jaw on this kampilan is broken off. Might be Maranao, but hard to tell based on the little okir decoration that I see.

Also the tip of the blade seems to have broken off and ground...

You're right. I thought that was the spine. Now this makes more sense.

I see what you mean Charles. The top part of the blade where holes are show remnants of the original holes. I agree with the assertion that part of the blade was damaged and thus cut away.

If this were old, then there would be black or dark patina in the crevices. So I also conclude that this is newer work. Nice work, but newer work.

Very nice thank you.

I LOVE that gile. I had one once, but the one you posted is one I would keep (I'm a real sucker for good silver filigree work :D ).

Good questions. So a few things:

1. the blade is from Mindanao. Both the Maranao and Maguindanao tribes use it (as well as Lumad groups).

2. I have seen various levels of carving quality on...
