Philippines talibon knife

length: 18 "
blade: 14 1/2 "
blade width: 1 1/8" maximum
grip: 3 1/2 "
weight: 9 oz

Classic single-bevel deep bellied blade, rounded instead of the usual angular face. Interesting left-hand design carved into the scabbard - an extremely common hilt motiff from the Philippine insurrection era, and thus probably a good date indicator...circa 1902-1905, from Northern Luzon.

Muchas gracias to mi amigo Conogre for help with date and location identification.
