Helleri, "SSII", is a possibility.

Peter, thanks for posting the photo. It provides a probability that the etching is original to the blade.

Markings on a Chinese sword?

Was this etched marking done by a westerner or is it original to the blade?
It either "SSD" or "550" :confused:

Thanks in advance for your help.

I would make sure the silver inlays are flush and firm within the channels, you don't want to risk snagging a stray with a steel wool thread and pulling it out.

I tend to believe that the metalwork on the hilt is original to the blade. The blade is still beefy, it doesn't seem to have been used much and so it hasn't been thru the grindstone much either....

Nice lantaka. Thanks for sharing.
How about the cannon stand? Did it come originally with the lantaka?
Can you post photos of the stand?

Another Sarimanok

I recently picked up this banner. It's over 9 feet in length. It's probably meant to hang indoors. I've seen photos of similar banners of this type hanging in the interior of a Torogan. Not sure of...

Very nice! I love that pierced carving on the hilt.

What characteristics points this blade as being Persian? Is it the style of the cartouche?

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Rick.
Same blade profile as your wootz, not a Tulwar sword.
Perhaps this thread will jog someone's memory.

Tulwar....?

This Tulwar(?), was offered to me in exchange for another sword.
Although it's not really what I collect, it was too nice for me to pass up.
So is it a Tulwar or does it go by another name?

It seems to have a well defined octagonal handle. Would you know if it were wrapped before rattan or otherwise?
I've never seen a pommel like this before.
