Apart from the unusual arrangement of the "fullers", and using Adni's reference as an ID guide, the Ron Da Nunut is also very unusual to my eye...specifically that nothing protrudes beyond the edge...

An unusual blade

Henri was kind enough to produce one from his own collection reputed to be Bugis...
