Hope you don't mind me correcting... "talibong" term actually isn't endemic in Leyte/Samar. The Waray call their battle blades as "sundang" and their utility ones as "bolo." While there's been info...

Thanks for the redirect Detlef!

Interesting blade; something about the profile reminds me more of a pinuti- Cebu rather than Leyte/Samar. Also the first time I've seen the date engraved on the...

Hello everyone...would like to ask your opinions on this pommel. I'm still in the process of restoring the rest of the kris, but I suspect this is ivory. Would appreciate your inputs, thanks!

Thanks for these excellent samples! I'm curious about the first one, especially since hilt seems polygonal from the current angle. I like it!

Hi Detlef! Thanks for this opinion...one of my mentors also believes it's all-original, and a younger time period than our pommel-extended samples. It's got a thinner spine as well, with the base at...

With regard to forms, there's still debate as to whether pre1900 and post1900 forms overlapped. Based on what I've researched and wielded so far- there seems to be major shift during the pre- and...

Lumad blade

Here's an old Lumad blade called "purok bolo" in modern times. I've no idea of the age, but it's gotta be older than 1970s (date of acquisition by previous owner). It's a bit different from the usual...
