Hello friends,

From my father's collection- a not so often seen (actually my father says that it is the only one he's ever seen) kampilan of the Kalagan tribe. OAL is 33 inches with a 22-inch blade.The handle/guard and pommel is the typical kampilan design (boaya/swiflet design). Copper braids on the handle. Scabbard: wood with ornate carvings and rattan bindings. Typical lumad design.
Note: the false edge is sharp.

The kalagan tribe- ethnic group of people from the southeastern part of the Philippines known as the Davao region. They are one of Muslim minority groups and belong to the 13 Moro tribes of the Bangsamoro family.
