Not Vietnamese. Thai, or possibly Laotian (ethnic Tai, in any event, so I guess Shan is also possible).

I got sick of keeping my excess swords in flat plastic boxes, so I built this cabinet to keep them in. Less portable, but more stylish.

No idea why the deep repousse work on swords is exclusively Burman (I believe it is) - as you say, the technique is hardly unique to Burma. Quirk of history or taste, perhaps. As for what this is,...
