    Nice! I would use that long one in the woods cutting brush!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Nice Score! The one accompanied by the two smaller knives is a Kukri and the one with the wooden scabbard is a Talibong bolo knife.

    All are a great pic up!! I like the sword. I'm trying to translate what is written. The first 2 words , No luck yet, Sent to daughter who is fluent in Spanish.

    But I did find the last words ( Amo De 1872)and date in Spanish translate to. "Master Of 1872"

    But not sure if Spanish, Filipino, or might be latin. but no hits on the latter.


    Still great pick up Gary

    My pick of the three, for pure interest, would be the "Mexican", which I suspect has been re-bladed by a local artisan. The hilt may come from an earlier made sword originally. The hilt appears to be of better quality of manufacture compared to the blade and scabbard. But it's an interesting cutlass like weapon.
