Thanks Alam Shah,
I forgot to look in the article of CÚdric le Dauphin that is referred to on the great reference site you linked to. I will do so later tonight.
At first glance the conclusions of the hilt evolution in the Le Dauphin article seems to differ from the ones in Spirit of Wood?
But I have to check if that's the case later.
Below is an additional picture of the blade to Nechesh.
No visible pamor as you can see (dapur Pandai Saras?).
I also have the silver Coteng version but I have heard that the oldest hilts are made of wood.
Is that correct?
