Default Moro Kalis question

Picked up this Moro Kalis, I think this one is from Mindanao late 1800/early 1900-s. What puzzles me is pommel. It is not usual kakatua and not a horse hoof...

No worries Groza.
This kind of pommel is fairly common for this type of kris. I had one of these for a while, but sold it a few years back.

Thanks! Philippino blades is not my area of expertise. Is this sword from Mindanao? And is dating it to late 1800/early 1900-s correct?

I would agree with that assessment, yes.

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.

David's former example used to be mine at one time.

I just found out that this is an active auction on eBay, which is against the forum rules.

Therefore I will close this thread till further notice.
