Thanks for that info, interesting that Morong has the same style. Fortunately, I know the provenance of the blades- the former owner, and even the panday who had, sadly, already passed away.

Hi Kai, the probable reason for this is because the Maranao and Maguindanao language are closely linked together; they come from the same root. The Maranao made tourist versions of the panabas, but...

Amazing collection! One of the best I've seen so far. May we inquire for more info regarding the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th samples? The 6th sample seems extra interesting as it has provenance note.
