Thank you Jean. Your blade looks similar. These pics are more clear in respect to the pamor.

Thanks. I wonder if this is a (very) old blade from Mataram period perhaps. Look at the thinned out peksi and worn pamor.

Malay handle

Is this a Malay hulu called Takala and the flaming wood is Ketenga? Body is strongly twisted. This typical wood is an indication for the origin?

Who can help me out with this inscription which I found on the upper inside of a mendak (ivory). It is hardly visible so I made a drawing. Possibly sanskrit language?
