I wonder if those are "self-tapping threads," where inserting it into a board, etc., would give it a great deal more stability and act like a handle?

Philippine Buyo Knife, Piso Raut, or Something Else?

The blade looks like a Philippine Buyo Knife, however, the handle, which I believe is bone looks to have carvings in the Dyak manner. The handle and the blade aren't in the Piso Raut configuration,...

Barong, Panabas, or something else.

I just acquired this item and I'm not quite sure where it fits in. Somewhat barong-shaped, but much heavier, with a double beveled 12" blade,3" at its widest, & 3/8" thick at the base of the spine....

I've been waiting for the experts to comment on your interesting axe, as I'm very curious about it as well.
In the meantime, I'll make my "non-expert," observations.

I think you guys are right; what purpose do you think they served other than decorative?
It would be great to see you there; I'm still trying to get Jim to come as well!

Good guess, but it is a hard resin or gum. I first encountered this end cap some years ago and I then, thought that somebody placed the endcap of a walking cane on the spear, however, this is the 3rd...

There aren't any markings on the sword, however, based on how it is affixed to the hilt, they would probably be covered if there were.

So there would be two ignitions; the primer in the pan and the actual charge? Was this done to ensure a more controlled discharge as opposed to a fuse or lighting up the actual touchhole?
Yes,...

Hand Cannons, Mortars, or Junk?

I'm certainly no expert on weapons, but I know even less about these types of items. I'm guessing that they are hand mortars & cannons, but I haven't a clue about their age or origin.
Any help...
