There is a chinese source (also Hasrinuksmo/Lumintu 1988: 19)mentioning short swords with rhino-horn hilts, send as a gift from Maharadja of Kahuripan to China (11 century?).
appears to have been taken from a work that is in fact quoting another source.
Could I trouble you to provide us with the complete verbatim quotation and any relevant footnotes?
