Here is a relatively recent (late 20th C.) Ilokano knife which is well made. The blade shows a clear hardened edge that I think reflects quenching rather than an inserted edge. The sheath is nicely tooled leather with brass fittings. Hilt is made from horn with metal inserts.

This example reflects ongoing skills in the manufacture of certain Luzon blades.
