What would a bird defend or attack with, the beak, I think.
Just a thought.

I also wonder if the...

I see what you mean by thin Xas. :eek:
If we look at the Iranun kampilan it too had a very thin blade but it seemed to work in practice for them at least against unarmored people.

Jose, do you think these were made using a centrifugal caster? Or would the silver stay molten enough to just pour the silver into the mold without leaving voids?

I'd like to see more pictures. If it's really wear and age or intentional, it seems quite randomly placed. :confused:
Could there be any significance in the colors and which one covers the other?

Layers of pamor might present as such, but look at your own thumbprint, compare how fine the print lines on your thumb are. :shrug:

IIRC there is a Panabas with the same kind of decoration lurking somewhere in the archives.

Thumbs up Kitchen Confidential

My century old Kukri is used quite frequently at our house. I don't use it for veggies really; but if you want to split a chicken breast or a whole bird it is my go-to knife for such work. :)
