    This is a really old knife. It appears to be hand-made. The handle and scabbard are wooden. The "furniture" is all made of solid silver. The double-edge blade is as sharp as a razor. Overall length of the knife is 10 1/4 inches. It has a 6 inch blade. The sheath is 6 3/8 inches long. The back of the sheath has a small amount of damage to the top silver band. An antique "boot knife" perhaps? I don't know, but it is a fearsome weapon, indeed. I sure wish that it could talk.

    What's it worth?

    Looks like a Filipino Punal. Could be an Indonesian version as well. You might want to do a Google search on Southeast Asian weapons. A Punal can start at about $50 and run up to $150.
