Default sulu budiak

Hi,

another one is on its way to us. A moro budiak from Jolo- but has a hilt of a sword/dagger. Unfortunately, no scabbard.

A laminated beauty. Will post more clear and presentable pictures when it arrives.

Enjoy,

Yves

I have never seen a Budiak blade like that one before.

Rick, there is a very similar blade shown in Krieger's Plate 6, no. 9 shown here.

A couple of examples from my collection Rick, the one to the right is of the type shown by Tanaruz.

Then in that case the base of the spear head has been modified (ground down) to use as a badik.
