Like Rick I too question the use of "kampilan". I also agree with Xasterix in that this is an unusual scabbard, almost looks like Moro "knock off" or a more recent Moro scabbard for this Bagobo...

Great examples and thank you GP for showing me those nicely worked brass scabbards and ferrules! One day when I grow up, I'll be able to replicate their quality of workmanship.

Congratulations...

Your example is nice. Hard to find these complete. The only thing is that your's is missing the other silver bands on the scabbard.

Still a nice example and thank you for posting it.

I would agree Rick that this is not a kampilan nor a datu class piece.

Datu glass pieces usually distinguish themselves by having lots of bead work on the scabbard.

Here is my example for...

I agree with Ian and will add:

1. This is a Maguindanao piece, not Maranao (based on the sale of the ganga and the scabbard).

2. This type of hilt I have seen on Malaysian keris called...

Actually this type of bell is not considered a tiger bell because the tiger bell has a "face" on it with eyes and a big mouth for an opening.

I also noticed how the baka-baka clamp motifs match that from under the pommel. Nice touch.

No only do I agree with Ian, but I remember that old thread. Sorry it is gone. Perhaps Ian you could re-create it? :D

Some of these are made by Bagobo hands (like Bagobo armour, also for sale on the market). Some even come from Marawi City I was told, made to look like other tribal shields or fantasy shields. There...

Amazing example! I would say that the blade is indeed Maguindanao. I don't see any evidence of suassa though.

Nice pattern. They were making pattern welded up into the 1960s. I would place this piece around that time.

I like the pattern welding in the blade. I agree with Kai that this is older, I'd say late 19c, and perhaps Maranao.

Looks like part of the jaw and the teeth are missing.
