Bicol ginunting

Hello,

The ones you're posted ( 2 blades and 3 pommels pictures). I've asked a long-time Bicol bladesmith and they're not from Bicol.

Bicol ginunting

Hello again,

According to a local bladesmith who does Bicol blades- these two are not Bicol blades. In my opinion (only mine)- they could be Aklan tenegre/tinegre talibongs.

a moro kris

Hello Sir,

Many thanks for the info.

PS: what do you think it that 'yellow' substance on the hilt? the purpose of which is to make the hilt more 'waterproof."?
