Default Wood Sword-like Clubs for ID

Saw these in an antique shop. Are they African? Also, what would be a reasonable offer?

That's coconut palm wood, very strong stuff. could be Filipino, or just about any of the pacific islanders, they do not seem to have any identifying shape or features. I have one, a practice sword club, that looks a lot like that from the Philippines. tho the grip is a lot more oval. Wood is called 'Bahia'.
