Default Blade from the Philippines

I should really appreciate opinions about this one....
I have my own thoughts because it looks like a blade I have been asking about before.... (Maranao) but I would like to hear the experts....
I only have this photo for the moment but any opinion at all should be very much appreciated....

Best,
Stefan

Hi Stefan:

I think this one is closely related to your other modern example from Maranao. Mid- to late-20th C Espada Maranao.

I'm with Ian. I'd guess at later 20th (or 21st) century...

Not only Maranao, but probably from Malawi city. Very recent.

I really love it when a weapon can be pinpointed not only to a country ( tribe, island, region) , but to a precise locale.
