Ben,

You mention "Latok Malay, Melanau." When I look up "Melanau" I find they are an old race from Sarawak. Are they related to the Sea Dayak?

Now that you mention a more northern origin than I originally thought, the brass ferrule seems reminiscent of the ferrule found on pakayun from the Murat. Any connection do you think?

Thanks for your help.

Ian
