Default PHIL BLADE IDENTITY

Hello,

This came from a seller/collector in the province of Iloilo (La Paz), Philippines. A fellow friend initially identified this blade as a pisau/pisaw. The collector has the story that this particular blade came from a galleon wreck off La Paz in Iloilo.

The blade is the lowest of the three blades in the picture.

Appreciate any inputs/info.

Thank you and kind regards

Yves

It doesn’t look like it was submerged in salt water for centuries.

Agreed, the blade would have been completely consumed.
