The dress looks recent, which is normal. It is extremely rare to find an old pedang in old dress.
It's very interesting, thank you.
I was thinking that it was a fantasy sword because of the ridiculous dragon head then I saw some golok with such grotesque heads...
As you said the wood doesnt look old (mid 20th?)
But the blade is very massive, sharp and of a very good quality.
There is a strong forged backedge like a khanda sword.
The blade has a shape of a yataghan...
