Need some help from my collector friends. I purchased these 2 teak cans/walking sticks earlier today. Some age to them as the older gentleman told me he purchased them in the Phillipines when he was in the Navy. They look like walking sticks and are beautifully carved, but pull open to reveal a long sharp blade about 11" long. Some marks on the blade. What are they called and were they just something made for the tourists? Thanks for any information.
