Default Panay Bukidnon Talibung?

Even if the nose is not as big as usual I suspect that this is a Talibung from the Panay Bukidnon, ex-the "wild ones".
Is this correct and how long do you think the original nose was?

Yes this is a Panay taribon. The nose was a little longer but not by much. I will study this to see how much longer and get back to you.

Thanks Jose,

It resembles one I have with a silver hilt but that one also has a lost nose tip.

Hello Michael,

nice Panay taribon! I also don't think that the nose was much longer judging by the pictures you have posted.

Regards,

Detlef

Oh yes, one more thing - I think there was a long ferrule or collar of brass or silver right above the disc guard.

My impression is that it is another spelling of a talibong/talibon/talibung etc.

Taribung, or Taribong, with a g at the end. from my understanding, taribungs is the term used in Antique province. it would be nice if nacho can chime in.

You are all correct. It depends on which part of Panay you are in. The Panay Bukidnons live in the central mountains of Panay. There are many dialects. For example, "kinaray-a" has sharper "r" on the words. In some towns of Iloilo, same words but using "L" in place of "r". Hence, talibong/taribong. Same with "u" and "o". Talibong/talibung.

So a Panay bukidnon may carry either a talibong, a talibung, a taribung, or a taribong depending on whether he goes down on the Aklan, Capiz, Antique or Iloilo side of the mountain. If he bumps into someone from Manila, the Manileneo will say he has a talibon.

Sanduko is a more specialized term used by the Panay Bukidnons themselves. We gathered this when Miguel Diaz and I interviewed them at Museo Iloilo a few years ago.

Talibung/talibong is always spelled with an "L." Only an outsider with spell it with an "R." It's just that most people who don't speak either Kinaray-a or Akeanon would not understand their peculiar dipthong and confuse the "L" and "R" sounds.

Nice Sulod piece, definitely highland. It's interesting in that it has more Ilonggo influence than Akeanon or Atikenyo in regards to the hilt, however the short bakatong blade is more Capizinio.
