Moro Kris, Mindanao, The Philippines

A Moro Kris from the Mindanao Region of the Philippines. The dark hardwood hilt is adorned with a silver band at the top which appears to be held in place by hand made copper nails. Another silver band encircles the base of the hilt, above which is a tightly wrapped band of cord. The tassel of braided ikat was attached to the sword when we acquired it as a part of a large Moro collection. The straight blade is in excellent condition. The blade is 21.75", overall length 26". C 1910 Ex Butterfield & Butterfield 1998.
