Interesting piece!

I would lean toward a 'refurbished' Chinese Jian in a Banjarmasin/Kalimantan dress. The Chinese were represented in large numbers due to trade in Southern Borneo. The bright red...

Nice example Micheal,

The Tjikeroeh swords were made around 1870-1920 and were often made for KNIL soldiers as private purchase. These are in fact the first mass produced swords/knives from West...

Agreed with all mentioned above, a nice blade but too deeply corroded to have it polished, the same for the guard. I think that some handy fellow had made this new hilt, but it sure does not add any...

It could be Matsya, a reincarnation of the goddess Vishnu who saved the world from flood. I would date it early to mid 18th century. Nice piece!

Hello John,

These are indeed 'Kiakavo' clubs from Fiji, among some collectors known as gunstock clubs. They are made from 'Casuarina equisetifolia' which is forcibly bounded to the ground to have...

I agree with the mentioned above, many characteristics compared to the Korean swords I have seen. Its a nice one, some are rather crudely made even by governmental manufacturers.

Nice piece, based on these photos it seems 17th to 18th century. It is actually a spear butt. The lance head which had once been part of this would have looked the same in execution, but with a wider...

Nice Badek,
The angle of the hilt indicates Javanese style, but the knob on the end of the scabbard and style of decoration points me to Sumatra more then Java. Some of these are attributed to...

I don't believe we can consider this a Sosun Pattah. The Kopis form of the blade from the Sosun can be distinguished in two forms, the Indo-Islamic and the Hindu basket form. The Indo Islamic form is...

Nice examples both of you gentlemen. They are quite rare. However they are simple and yet elegant in design, they certainly serve an ability for non-ceremonial use.

Well done!

It has similarities to the Katar, but the Katar is much longer and mostly has a more pronounced armor piercing tip. Its is more leaning toward a South Indian spearhead.

You found it! A Fijian Ula, a type of throwing club. The bone or shell inlays are done later, often by collectors and counterfeiters to spice them up.
