I also think the kampilan could also be Maguindanao based on the okir oon topn the pommel. It is obviously missing the hair on top and this indicates a possible ceremonial piece. Also the holes at the end of the kampilan blade may have been filled with brass or even silver, being talismanic.
Thank you for your insight on my blades.

Is it always the case when the hair is missing that it is a ceremonial piece?
