I was so happy to work o Ian's barong.
I agree your's probably had ivory, wood, or even horn on the pommel.
And yes, sperm whale tooth is a form of ivory, and it is not unheard of to use sperm whale tooth, sea cow tooth, hippo tooth, even clam shell. Lots of trade in the region.
And Yves you have PM.
