On the kampilan, it might be Ilanun. However I agree that the scabbard is later and Maranao.

The spear is interesting. It does look Lumad, perhaps Bagobo, Tagagolo, or perhaps even T'oli. ...

Indian khanjars do not have a forte and scabbard chiseled like this. I'm with RSword on this one entirely.

I've seen this somewhere before.

I'm wondering if the pommel was broken and cut off at the back tip and the bottom tip.

For me this is a head scratcher. :confused:
