Antique Folk Art Hand Crafted Philippine Bolo Sword Itak Tagalog Carved Wood
I am pleased to offer this Antique Hand Crafted Philippine Bolo Sword Itak Tagalog!
This elegant blade has the distinct curvature of those from the Philippines, and has a wonderfully hand carved figural pommel.
The pommel figure appears like a settler, notice the hair style.
The blade is 17-1/2″ L, and shows wear from use and age. There is a large pit to the edge close to the tip.
The sword comes with its original ornately carved wooden sheath, which appears to have used copper nails to join the wood sides.
The piece displays its age wonderfully.
Measures approx. 22-1/2″ Total Length; 24″ Total Length in sheath
