David, 40 or 50 years ago I think I might have agreed with you that this hilt form is not really a janggelan, but then, I would not have had any other Indonesian name to to give it. However, in...

A nice old photo Marco, but what David wants to see is dress.

The dress looks recent, which...

IP, I would suggest that these hilts are called sandang walikat hilts because they are the correct hilt to wear with a sandang walikat wrongko.

sandang = clothing

walikat = shoulder blade (scapula)
