Resurrecting it after 11 years:-)
I see that all Piso Podangs have trilobate endings of quillons.
Does it mean that ALL swords with trilobate quillons tips hail from Sumatra/Borneo/Malaysia? Do we know of genuinely Indian examples with such quillons?
After all, this type of handle came to the “Malay” world from India.
Also, all “Malay” Piso Podangs have bronze/brass handles. Any iron ones that we know?
