IGOROT BOLO #5019
This traditional bolo from the Mountain Province of Northern Philippines looks real at a distance. Upon closer examination, one realizes that there is no metal blade except for an outline depicting one. Why would anyone bother with such novelty?

Apparently for protection especially at dusk or night fall. Wearing a bolo deters unwanted confrontations from the bad guys. However it is illegal in some areas to carry a real bolo except when farming.

Made by the Igorot headhunter group of N. Philippines. A novelty and excellent for décor unless one decides to carry it at night. Scabbard length is 18" and handle is 6-1/2".Rare.
