Default Two Good Bagobo Swords For Records

Here are two nice Bagobo swords for our records. Both have nice examples of textiles and decoration. I believe both are from the 1st third of the 20th century.

Sword 1:
Overall length 21in.
Blade length 15in.
Widest point of the blade 1.75in.

Sword 2:
Overall length: 23.25in.
Blade length 16.75in.
Widest point of the blade: 1.5in.

Charles I would agree with your assessment, perhaps just slightly earlier.

The second one once had rings with white hair.

Beautiful swords Charles ! I bam in agreement with what everyone else has said about them, especially Jose's thoughts about them being possibly being of a slightly earlier origin. Thank you for posting these for our records.
