Hello Max,

the scabbard on the right isn't a Cirebon one but a Coteng scabbard IMHO. Can you post a photo of both from the other side?

After looking again to your pictures, are you sure that the handle is hardwood? Look very similar to the material at the scabbard mouth, i.e., horn.

It could be fishing line like Henk said but it look like it has some good age, I would guess that your sword could be from 1930-1950. :shrug:

Don't want to attack you Wayne! :) But the shown knife from Blue is for sure not a tumbok lade, like said I would just call it piso/pisou.

Hello Wayne,

what you show seems to my eyes a cheaply made tourist knife.

Hello Ian,

Hello Russel,

the compliment has to go to Robert who has done this great job. The fittings are not from silver but from brass silver washed to correspond with the handle.
