Default Old Philippines Bowie

I stumbled across this on eBay. Looks like tap typical higher end Bowie from Pompanga? The blade is about 9.5 inches long no sheath.

Great looking Bowie's Lew. The decorative end caps are some of the nicest I've seen. Did you win the first one? If you did nice catch.

Regards,
Robert

I remember this one, you have shown it before in a other thread. And agree that the handle is very similar so I think you are correct that it is from Pampangan.
