I don't think the colour photo is necessarily a fake. That is how brother Raul on the far right and he seems an appropriate age for the older Fidel in this photo.

Mystery Axe

I'm not sure where to place this so i'll start with it here.
This isn't mine, but belongs to a friend. It was labeled as a "French fur trade battleaxe", but that seems highly doubtful. It is...

Mahesa/Kebo

I have always found myself drawn to Mahesa/Kebo keris, though i'm not really sure why. And so i have a fair number of examples of the various forms in my collection. But i am always receiving...

Here is my example, also on a Sumatran keris. For lack of a better name i have called it a Gana hilt, though obviously these has been adjustment to the original form of the wood.

I'm not sure what kind of horn this is. It doesn't really look like rhino, but then your photos don't really reveal very much. I can't see the structure of the horn. On close examination though you...

Maybe. To be honest pamor identification is not my strongest suit. Could be Bendo Sagodo though.
