Looks like your blades are from the Philippines. From top to bottom: a kampilan, a kris, a kalinga and a machete, which could be from anywhere but possibly is associated with the other three. Many of these weapons show up in museum as souvenirs from the Moro Rebellion (1899-1913).

@OldSarge79 has it just right. I am not sure of the machete on the bottom--it could very well have been used by the person who collected these other weapons. Way back in college days, I worked in my college's museum. It still has an extensive collection of these Moro weapons. Your axe has a potentially alarming history. It was made for head hunting. You could carry your trophy home on the spiked end. This are all fascinating weapons and I think quite desirable to have in your collection.
