Default Timorese sword

HI IAN,AM POSTING PICTURES OF MY SWORD FROM THE TIMORESE GROUP,ALOR SWORD
The scabbard is made of two wooden pieces, tied together with rattan. The binding can continue over the scabbard’s entire length. Its mouth can be very broad, and towards the back somewhat less broadened, or hardly broader than the hilt’s stem. The mouth is always decorated with carving resembling that on the hilt, also with a raised central ‘eye.’ The scabbard has an angled foot, facing towards the edge side. This foot is decorated with carving which always includes a central raised circle.”
THE ABOVE IS SEEN CLEARLY IN MY SWORD,CHEERS AND THANKS FOR POSTING
