A rare very fine Visayan Banangon.

This seldom seen sword is from the Panay Island in Southern Visaya.
It measures just under 65cms sheathed, just under 62cms out and has a blade length just under 48cms.
The Deity Hilt is an expertly carved example and is carved from a dark green horn. It wears an octagonal iron collar and a thick dark horn disk guard.
The sheath is original and untouched. It retains the stitched leather near the throat and some rattan binding to the body of the sheath. The unusual carved throat has become seperated from the sheath but remains in good condition with small losses hidden beneath the stitched hide over the join. There are losses to the edges as seen in the images.

A very nice and rare sword of very good quality.
