Default Ginunting (Binangon)

Sometimes I go a long time between finding good Philippine pieces, sometimes they come in bunches. Here's a ginunting or binangon from the northern part of the Philippines. Overall length is 23 3/4", while the blade is 17 3/4". The horn hilt has a small octagonal ferrule, and is held on with a threaded nut. Comments on age and location welcomed.
Thanks,
Steve

I would say you have been taking your "lucky pills" but I think it is careful searching and observance paying off. Another nice piece! Congratulations!
