Question: I know it's hard to see, but the etchings are difficult to capture. Is this language Filipino and what does it mean? The back side of the knife says Philippines so I'm guessing at its origins.

@SiAko I (respectfully!) disagree. I'm very familiar with alibata, and these symbols don't match those. If you rotate the image and view the blade vertically down from the handle, they very much resemble Japanese or Chinese characters.
