Default Help with a couple old metallic arrow points

I purchased these two arrow points together. I believe the leaf shaped steel point is Cordilleran Peoples/Igorot, from Luzon. Thereís some fine carving on the shaft behind the plant fiber bindings.

The other, barbed point is a mystery. Itís made from non-magnetic metal, perhaps brass? Itís quite thick and heavy.

I wonder if they were collected together in the Philippines, or if the barbed tip was collected in South America or elsewhere?

The shaft on this point is cane or a cane-like material. I feel the twine binding covered with a waxy substance is common in South American arrows.

Default Arrow Heads

Good question however you may be on the money where you got the items; after all South East Asia has the biggest array of Arrow Heads outside Africa. The arrow shafts as you point out are cane/bamboo and again point to the area they were found. Regretably I dont know of a World Arrow Head directory but as I said this is a great question and I hope something turns up.

Thank you! I appreciate your input. I need to go through Hendrik Wiethaseís books again, he might have illustrated something similar.
