There aren't many weapons in this museum, seems more like a artifacts on the daily lives of colonial Filipinos outside of war.

I've seen his forums before. There are actually a few arguments made by some people on previous threads on how the wavy blades shown by Miguel aren't Visayan or aren't made by Visayans.

PM for spanish sources on Visayan kris and kampilan blades

It is apparent after reading some sources that the visayans weren't alien to using weapons outside of farmers tools such as the bolo or talibong. I've realized that some artifacts reported to be used...

I think by the time Filipinos started using spanish steel, the use of swords mostly as weapons have died off as it was preferred that the natives and spainards used rifles or guns to fight the moros.

Ian,

I think this stigma comes from how Filipino blades aren't seen on the same level as other asian blades with only the moro weapons being the exception. From sources that I have seen from books...

Any sources on non-moro Philippine forging?

I'm not sure if this was brought up before but, seems to be a narrative around that the best or working Filipino blades are only of moro origin....

That the use of cast iron along with the forging...

Another thing I'd like to add is that, "Lapu-Lapu" who I'm assuming is a Visayan used what is described as a "scrimitar but only larger" in relation to long blades being used by Visayans.

Would you know any proof of Visayan kampilans? Hard to believe that the Japanese would have longswords and the Filipinos didn't.

Visayan barong?

Didn't really know that the visayans used barongs.

Since there seems to be a visayan barong, then its probably safe to assume that Filipinos like the Visayans used the Kampilan and the Panabas at...

- The Philippine Islands, 1493-1898 - Volume 40 of 55
1690-1691 Explorations by Early...

I don't recall Visayan blades having that type of quality steel. More or less they mostly worked with iron "as breakable as glass" which they imported from china.
