    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

    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.

    Just select the "upload a file" option and load the image directly to the site.

    Philippines = bolo I think. Kukri is shorter and broader, and the blade is more boomerang shaped
