Extremely rare kampilan with wooden handle carved by a master carver. The very fine detailed helmet head in a style that has some relation with the Dutch late 16 century flintlock pistols. ( see example) .
The crossguard is very thick and different from the usual Philippine type. The blade with double fullers ,with a band of pamor and a quite long slope. The origin of this non-muslim kampilan could be the Celebes sea ( North Borneo-North Celebes-Talaud Islands)
Condition is very good.
See for another very early example with fullers here
Size: 105 cm.
