looks like a katchin dha/daab machete for westerners,like the chindits. The pommel probably had a brass plate on it that many westerners removed because the plate hurt their wrists when the used it the way westerners do, they also usually whittled or broke off the wood under the pointy bit that 'bit' them...They also preferred the leather scabbards. Nice jungle chopper knives.
