An Honest Pair of Barongs to Share

I just got lucky and picked up these pair of barongs. Good honest pre-WW2 examples. It is getting quite hard to pick up any Philippine weapons reasonably lately unless one gets fortunate or a fluke.

Thanks for the comments. I don't think that Korean potters didn't have the capability to produce excellent pieces, but rather that this piece was probably produced rurally, meant to be more...

Ship Tureen Theory

I just picked this up and I have a theory about its possible origins & I would like another opinion(s).
I believe that this is a Chinese export piece to the Dutch known as Kraak Ware. This would date...

Some very nice examples. I noticed that yours has a bi-colored handle like Kronckew; I wonder if that is indicative of a particular knifemaker or area. Also, your scabbard is similar to his as there...

I just acquired this recently; I have been looking for one of these for a while and it appears that a lot of other people have gotten some other very nice examples lately.
From a previous post on...

Your example, though better carved than mine, I think more closely resembles the facial features of my club; especially the ears and the nose. Do you know where it comes from?

Thanks for the insight. I should have noted that the 3 toed object is approx. 10" long and made of wood, twine bark, and pitch among other things. The claws are made of wood.

I think I found my long lost brother! With the offset head, I feel mine could be patterned after a Massi Rungu Club.

African War Club??

I just picked up this war club or at least I think it is. It is 19" long, almost 4" in diameter at the head. It has the weight and feel of a fighting club, however, the face carving would make it...
