Default lumad kris

Hello,

a kris from the a Lumad tribe in Palawan (southern). My father saw this kris 3 years ago (2019) when he visited Palawan- but unfortunately, the kris was not up for sale then.

After nearly 3 years of convincing the owner to sell- finally, he gave in.

Apologies for the blurred and not to sharp pictures. Will send more sharp pics soon.

Enjoy,

Yves

Looking forward to the better pictures.

What Lumad tribes are on the southern part of Palawan?

Default LUMAD KRIS

Hello,

in my readings, these are the ethnic people who reside on the southern part of Palawan:

1) Palawano
2) Taaw't Bato
3) Molbog

According to the previous owner, this kris came from the Molbog people. They live in the southern part of Palawan (Balabac and Bataraza). They are the only indigenous people in Palawan where majority of its people are Muslims.

Hi Yves,

While waiting for additional pictures, I took the liberty of enlarging the picture of the hilt and gangya area of this sword. The elephant trunk area suggests that the blade was of Maguindanao manufacture, and the hilt is consistent with Maguindanao work also.

May have found its way to Palawan, but the work is Maguindanao, as Ian noted. Might show some intersting patterning on the blade.

And just to add there was a lot of trade in the area. Sometimes we will find a kris or other piece in the wrong area or with different tribal styles on the same piece - indicative of trade between tribes.
