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?

Thanks Dimasalang, you have jogged my memory. I have seen tortoise shells on Kris scabbards. I know I have seen this Barung on Cecil's web-site before.

Nice collection of wooden hats.
The one with the brim looks like a bowler hat, similar to what Curly from the 3 Stooges would wear.

I believe the one with the silver finial is Moro.

Nice. It seems like no one showed up for the bidding war. I like these type of hilts, it has a chunky abstract look to them. The cross guard could be wood not horn. Good catch Sajen.
