    Im not sure, but this was in GMA’s docu about Philippine gold but isn’t the sash thing that’s worn by Lapu-lapu like super heavy and was only used for ceremonies? Coz the original bust (statue) that held the thing for display broke after a while and they had to get one that was more tough.

    Also if he was using a kampilan, the sheath shouldn’t have been there. The sheaths of kampilans are made up of 2 separate pieces of wood tied together? And the kampilans I have seen are impossible to remove from the sheath unless you opened them up.
