Very nice. Looks like the location might say Ilo Ilo in the Visayas region. :shrug: That is where most of the fighting took place between Filipinos and Americans. Got any better pics?

I also have one strikingly similar. Chiseled edge makes it more so coming from the Visayas region. I also was told Panay. My guess would be these to be 30s or WWII(or a little after) production, but...

You have any more info on your great-grandfathers exploits in the Philippines? What branch, which units, or where he was stationed? :) Typically a lot of battles and skirmishes were documented.

Wow! Thanks for sharing Nacho! :D
I wish mine had a date. :(

Do you think ours were made by the same smith. The design, particularly the scabbards, are just so close to looking exactly alike.
