I understand why you picked this one up. Great shape. Hard to comment on this single picture.
It has a javanese ukiran but it wouldn't surprise me if we had to look at the Sumatran region.

Spaffo,

Is it possible to post a picture of the pommel? I don't see a lionhead.
I think the pommel can tell us something more. What i see at the moment is a fine kukri.

Gentlemen,

Thank you for your comments. Certainly useful. The copper hilt however gave me an indication of a military sword as Timo sugested.

Used to be a sabre, i guess

The guard is obvious cut off. No marks on the blade.
Has anyone an idea what this used to be?

I'm afraid this is a fairy tale as well. Brutaly said, chinese antique is fake. You have to know how to look to distinguish real chinese antique from fakes.

Great Bugis keris. Very nice catch. A pity the wrongko is missing.
Certainly not overcleaned. This is how a neat Bugis keris looks like.

I do remember the explanation of a historian of using lead bullets in stead of stone by the Romans. The impact of a lead bullet was proven to be a heavier injury also by the fact that lead was toxic.
