Default unidentified sword

It bears the semblance of a Samar hilt profile. This one was purchased by my father from a seller/owner who hails from Samar.

A fellow friend from Leyte identifies this blade as an OYON Blade- a Waray(people of Leyte) term meaning straight blade.

But what could it possibly be? The blade's length is 20 inches. The pommel is made of a certain hardwood with a deity(?) carved on the pommel.

No scabbard.

The blade is currently being restored by a trusted restorer.

Any info is much appreciated.


sharper, crisper pictures of sword #1(unidentified) before restoration. Rgds.
