I don't think its a good idea to take the drawings in Blink's work as a reference,the drawings are not very fine (see how at the drawings of the kerisses for example).
the uncarved models have been seen by Tromp in Kutei.
Willem, the other one you have there (with that flower motif) is from the area of Negara or Amuntai.(south Borneo)
here some pics of mine example with almost uncarved handle.
The blade is very thick at the shoulder.
