I enjoyed this book, "The Illustrated World Encyclopedia of Knives, Swords, Spears and Daggers" by Harvey Withers and Dr Tobias Capwell. However, one major fault of the book is that it only has one entry for Philippine Swords.
Only the Philippine Kris was featured in the book. Here's my Kris, a modern reproduction, sourced from my hometown of Zamboanga City.
Filipino culture is a bladed culture. Hope we see more features on Filipino blades in the future.
