WELCOME TO THE FORUM IT LOOKS LIKE A NICE COLLECTION AND NOT REALLY THAT SMALL, NICELY DISPLAYED AS WELL. THE LAST SWORD IS A STRANGE ONE AND THE SCABBARD DOES INDEED LOOK BLADE LIKE I HAD ONE WITH A SIMULAR TIP BUT A STRAIGHT BLADE CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS CALLED NOW BUT IT WAS IN THE OLD FORUM ARCHIVES ALONG WITH SEVERAL OTHER STYLES FROM THE SAME MAKER AND TIME. ALL WERE POSTED SEPARATELY UNDER "VANDOO'S MORO SWORDS" I THINK.

A CLOSE UP OF THE HANDLE AND THE CARVING ON THE SCABBARD WOULD BE HELPFUL. THE CARVING DESIGN ON THE SCABBARD KIND OF LOOKS DAYAK BUT THAT DOSEN'T MEAN BORNEO WOULD BE THE ONLY PLACE IT COULD BE FROM. GOOD LUCK
