Default Barung or keping-type sword, re-handled?

New addition to the collection. Hoping to get some input on this. Can I call this a barung or keping? Blade is pretty thin, slightly tapered. I suspect itís an older blade thatís been re-handled. If so, can anyone identify the sword the hilt would have originally belonged to? I noticed the blade has a ďxĒ mark similar to my Luzon Hundang. I was able to wiggle the hilt off with little effort. Overall feels like a well-used piece. I feel it might be from Palawan? Thanks!

Dimensions: 52 cm overall length, 41 cm by 6 cm blade.
