Default LEYTE BOLO

Hi all,

This came together with the kris (previously posted). The hilt looks Leyte...but am not sure about the blade profile. It's 22 inches (OAL) with a very thick spine.

The 'bakunawa' hilt is one that I often see in Leyte blades.

Note: the kris (previously posted) is also featured here showing its scabbard.

Than you in advance for any info on this old warrior.

Kind regards

Yves

Yves, could you post another picture (larger) of the sword out of its sheath. I tried enlarging the one above but it is too blurry.

Thanks,

Ian
