Interesting, thank you for the link. Mine has nicks in the edge and the tip is sort of smashed in, as if it stabbed into something hard. So whatever its purpose, it seems to have been put to hard use. I have no idea if the blade is brass, bronze, copper or what. It's orange (with some verdegris) and non magnetic, that's all I know. The bolster is also non magnetic, but it's yellow.

Incidentally I asked a Philippino friend what he thought of it. He suspected the makers didn't have any steel handy so they melted down some copper cables.
