Thanks for sharing this with us Carlos.

That's an interesting barung in the last photo. How common are barung with false edges like that?

Come to think of it, that beveled edge looks odd as well.

Carlos, do you recall what that stamp at the forte is?

carlos,

muchas gracias, mi amigo. as usual these type of pictures are deeply appreciated. as for the picture themselves:

WW! for some reason, those swords with forked handles and very small handguard: what are they? are they visayan? it looks like a flattened diety hilt with an exaggerated horn. even the blade is in a tenegre fashion...they were on the other pictures you've provided as well. nice panabases! the padsumbalin on the right seems to have a real hefty blade. and oh, oh, oh, don't forget the bangkung. any close up on that??? on the second group of pics you've provided (museo tarragona), between the flinlock and kris, that looks like a bangkung as well. very interesting.
andrew,here's one from the old message board:

once again, thanks for the pictures, carlos

Mil Gracias, Carlo. Especially for the up close pictures of the barong with horn and the punto that is repoussed (I was hoping you would post that one ). Nice stuff. Helpful.

The third pic from Tarragona, underneath the butt of the Kabyle gun, there is a saber with anthropomorphic handle(black wood and some incrustations).
Any info what is it? North African?
There is a label next to it but can't read it.

I COULD READ THE LABEL AND THE SWORD WAS FROM NORTH AFRICA, BUT I THINK IS POSSIBLE THE SWORD WAS FROM PHILLIPINES.

Oi!
Could you please post more pictures of that suit? I'm an armourer and my absolute favourite is m&p... But there's only a very few online pictures of them, which's very bad for me - I want to improve my authenticity.
Oh, if my english seems horrible sometimes, forgive me, I'm from Hungary.
