Welcome to the forum. Fixed the picture for you
Looks like a machete type implement from the Malay/Indonesia/South Pacific Island general area, a bolo or parang. Someone here probably knows more specifically though
Why am I having trouble uploading pictures from my Android phone?
We lived in the Philippines when I was a kid. Found a picture that suggested it was a fighting knife. Looks hand made think the wood is ebony.
Looks like a kukri to me.
Just select the "upload a file" option and load the image directly to the site.
Here's an example from WWII that's very similar to yours, including handle wood:
Philippines = bolo I think. Kukri is shorter and broader, and the blade is more boomerang shaped
Separate names with a comma.
