Old Philippines Bowie

I stumbled across this on eBay. Looks like tap typical higher end Bowie from Pompanga? The blade is about 9.5 inches long no sheath.

Hi Lotfy

Very nice! Has lots of character and you can still see a distinctive wootz pattern. The hilt is silver so at some time it must have belonged to someone of wealth :).
