    Was the Kampilan used before islam was introudced to the Philippines? How long were swords compared to the ones seen in thailand like the krabong or the japanese katana?

    Are their any 30 inches or higher medium sized swords used in the Philippines? To be more specific, ones that are used by the Maharlika or tiamwa or any warrior that was below the datu. The only one I know is the Kampilan and panabas but there's a debate on whether the Muslims are the one who made it or not (hopefully notJust give me anything to prove that the animist of the Philippines also used medium sized swords like the cutlass, spatha, viking sword, ect

    Why does it even matter to you? The datus would just **** their pants if confronted without their sword according to you. Go train krav maga and stop asking stupid questions. You can do a google search.
