Default MARANAO KRIS

Greetings everyone, just sharing pictures of my Maranao kris. Comments and analyses are welcome. Interesting thing, the scabbard was wrapped in a very yellowed Italian newspaper 'Il Tempo' with the following legible details:

Anno XLVIII / N.12
Domenica
13 gennaido 1991

From the wrapping, I'm surmising that the PH-based collector I got this from was on a trip in Italy and managed to procure this piece. Or it could just be that he subscribed to that particular newspaper. Either way, the previous owner held on to this for almost 30 years.

Enjoy!
