Punal or gunong kriss dagger from the Moro Muslim area of Mindanao. Hardwood hilt and scabbard (scabbard is not original to the blade, it's a bit long, but it's a perfect match age-wise, stylistically, and qualitatively). Carbon steel incised flamberge blade, German silver hardware and fittings. Mid 1900's
