Can someone ID this vintage mini balisong?

Post by Mario »

I picked this up yesterday at an antique store.

Appears to have brass handles and bone inlays (a piece of which is broken off). It didn’t have a center stop pin so I made one for it out of a nail.

There aren’t any markings. Could it be an old Filipino one?
