    [​IMG] Yeah I've been googling around scanning images haven't got far as I don't know anyone that knows knife history. I honestly think this is some decorative knife.

    It's a filipino knife. Google "Filipino knives" for lots of images.

    I was really hoping it wasn't I've seen that carving style that way on a table. What's funny is I'm half Filipino and found it in a liberal arts college town.

    Yes, in agreement with Rich. These are Filipino Bowies / fighting knives meant to appeal to soldier stationed there during WWII or later.

    I'm willing to guess it was someone who passed away and their relatives thought it was junk.

    I had one a lot like that I bought in the Philippines. I had it on my belt in Saigon during Tet.

    Sounds like Vietnam era stuff was mixed in there. I know my father was over there.
