Does anyone know what it is?... my guess is it's one of the 'mandaus' made by muslim dayaks of borneo. Would appreciate any comments/explanation and pictures of similar examples elsewhere.

It looks like a an atypical Mandau to me (as it sports a pointy tip and false edge which I haven't seen until now on a Mandau).
