Default This strange "Filipino" Dha

There's an uploaded photo by a sword collecting user, of a Dha looking sword with a scabbard scribbled with Baybayin alphabet writing. Claiming it to be a Filipino Dha sword.

The theory is that this came from isolate places like Mindoro, where there exists some villages who still write Baybayin during the timeframe this blade was likely constructed.

Any thoughts? Is this really a Filipino made blade? I personally cannot fathom this being one of those bladed weapons that pre-Hispanic Visayans or Luzon people importing edged weapons from other Asian cultures since that happened much long ago than this blade's time of creation.
