Hello Marcus,

Quote:
I just comitted to a Timor sword on Oriental Arms.

I'm afraid Artzi got that one wrong - it's an alamang/alameng, a typical Buginese/Makassarese sword. While these do show up elsewhere in Bugis-influenced areas, I don't think there is any reason to trace this examples' origin to the wider Timor group...

Regards,
Kai
