Default Gunong...recent or vintage?

Happy (almost( New Year, everyone!

I have some time on my hands to finally post some recent additions to my budding collection.

Here is my first gunong. I was attracted to the presence of silver (a jeweler says it is silver, at least). I have looked around, and only have seen one with a similar bone hilt and scabbard. That said, the use of bone for these parts of the knife seems gimmicky, and suggests ethnographic art intended for tourists.

However, I shall let the experts here weigh in with their impressions.

Thanks!
