Default Classic Bikol Minasbad

Here is a recently acquired Bikol minasbad that conforms to many of the swords most familiar features. This one includes its rather practical, plain, unartistic scabbard. The sword's hilt is rather crudely carved horn, with an iron hand and finger guard. The nicely balanced blade is in good shape and features a floral pattern chiseled on one side close to the spine.

Enjoy, and comments welcomed.

Overall length: 29in.
Blade length: 19.5in.
Blade's widest point 1.75in.
Thickness of the blade at the forte: just short of 1/2 in.(!!!)
