Battara have you seen any other budiak as ornate as this? I mean from the blade to the shaft everything is a stand out - it's as if whoever made this decided to pull out all the stops in terms of...

Is This A Barong Sword From Borneo?

I have had this barong for some time and I have always been puzzled by its unusual silver sleeve, particularly the garlic bulb shape and the carving which I haven't seen in any other barong. However...

Thanks Charles, it is indeed going to be a stand out addition to my collection once it is restored. It is hard to find datu barongs of this type with the pommels intact (plume, beak and inlays).

Thanks for the confirmation Detlef. It's not as flashy as the silver-hilted ones but it is a honest and a complete example of a gobang. Is this a rare sword type and what do you think is its age,...
