1800s Moro Fighting Kris

An original pre Spanish American War Moro kris which is described in Robert Catos “Moro Sword”, as a Fighting Kris. It is solid. Silver mountings on the hilt as well as the scabbard. As fine a Kris as I have owned. Approximately 26 inches line with wavy blade.

These inflicted terrible wounds on our soldiers during the Philippine Insurrection. Spanish American War. If you are going to collect Philippine weapons you should buy the Cato book that I have listed. Very expensive and out of print. Research the book.
