I agree with Ian on everything but one. The chop marks on the blade need to be checked out by someone who knows Chinese. There have been several times when such chop marks are actually nonsense to...

I agree that the mounts are not Igorot nor is the blade. The shaft however is the right length for an Igorot spear and the end does look Igorot. It might be right for a Lumad piece of a particular...

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