Arrow Tombak for comment

Hello!
This is next piece from National Museum.
As for me it looks like tombak with sheath... and this is the end of my knowledge The question is, can you tell me how old is it, and where came it from (Java?)

Measurements:
lenght: 40 cm (15,7'')
lenght of the blade: 23 cm (9'')
width at the base: 2,4 cm (0,9'')
lenght of the sheath: 34,5 cm (13,5'')

It's not complete. There is no handle, sheath needs restore becouse of many scratches. Is there a notch at the beginning of the sheath, or it's just one of the damages ?
So what do you think about it?

Best regards
