Very nice antique dha/daab--c.1900

A no frills antique dha/daab, probably Thai but could be Lao or Burmese. The blade is particularly well forged, with a peaked spine, and it tapers gradually in thickness from the hilt to the tip. The...

Mike,

Like several others, I think your sword is most likely from 1880-1900. I also believe it is from the Sulu Archipelago rather than Mindanao.

Here's why I think it is late 19th C. The blade...

The second sword shown by ausjulius in the above post is indeed a Lao daab, most likely pre-WWII. The curator's notes indicate a date avant 1942, consistent with the style and condition of the sword....

Hi Kurt,


Is there anything about the dress of the individual that might help with identification of the style and period?

In post 20 above there is an interesting figure on the reverse side of the hilt to the one with the two peri. Does anyone know what that figure is representing?

Hi IP,

Thanks for showing the van Zonneveld pictures and text. I've taken the liberty of scanning the figures to try to get a clearer image. Afraid the original pictures are not very good.

Hi Jose,

Nice blade with carving on the end. This is now the third or fourth one of these I have seen, so yours is not alone. Any thoughts about the significance of this style variant?

Hi Chris.

Not very common to see brass inlays on panabas and, as Kai noted, the same inlays occur on a minority of kampilan too. I'm not aware of any specific significance of brass dots on these...

Hi IP:

I don't think there is a direct link or a particular association between the two. The panabas as a weapon is thought to be derived from an agricultural tool known as a tabas--the two...

I too think this is a recurved blade, but it does not resemble any other sossun patah I've seen.

Kubur,

As I mentioned, several authorities speak of the haladie. Stone has this entry: It seems that this form may not be of the "parrying shield" class, but used differently as rather a fancy knife.
