Thumbs up

Thanks, Gustav!

the metal sleeves and the motif on them is what we often seen on refurbished Minang and Palembang Kerisses coming out of post WWII Sumatra. I see the reason, why these could be Malayan, but... am not 100% sure about it.

I don't have close-ups of the scabbard bands yet; assuming that they approximate the ferrule, you have a point, indeed. I need to research this some more!

Charles, could you please post close-ups of the scabbard (sword from post #2), please?
