Obviously these are highly rusted, but the left one is a type of spear, and the bottom is a type of khanjar hilt, which may have had some kind of koftgari decoration on it.

An interesting knife. Looks like it might have been sharpened nearly straight, thus it might have had a "belly" like the kukri at one time.

Your kris is indeed datu class, is Maguindanao in origin, and from the 1920s - 1940s. The mounts might be silver wash (possibly white metal) and the brown hilt bands are copper (possibly brass).

It is from the Maguindanao tribe on the east coast of Mindanao. I would also say early 1900s. The baka-baka clamps might be silver also though they need to be cleaned or tested to be sure.
