I agree that the blade looks Filipino, but i have never seen a sheath like that from that area so i am hesitant. Definitely has that Spanish influence, but maybe from a different colony.
Beautiful dagger regardless of origin.

You could very easily replace the missing flower on the handle.

Here is a close up photo of a sheath of that time. This one in particular belonged to Gen Thomas Mascardo. Sheath looks similar to me.

If this is indeed PI, then the blade would indicate Ilocano origins or influence.
