Dear Colleagues,

Please help me with some advices.

I just bought this Machete.
From what I know this is a Klewang or Bolo from Philippine in very good condition.
It is handmade , the blade is 40 cm long and is strong and robust with clearly marks from the forge and hammer. Carbon steel blade cuts and really holds an edge. Shine right up with carbon paper.
The handle grip is 12 cm long and is made from Carabao horn with a hexagonal model.
Wooden scabbard 46 cm long .
The weight of the Klewang is 540 grams and Klewang + Scabbard is 740 grams in total.
From what they told me the dating is 19th Century provenance ( 1900-1930 )

But I'm skeptical about the dating and the value of this piece.

Can you please look at the pictures and tell me your opinion about this model ( dating, value and other characteristics )

Thanks for helping me with these answers !
