Default Finally Home - Mandaya Dagger And Nobility Barong

After 6 months of waiting, a Mandaya dagger that I asked Battara to restore is finally with me along with a nobility barong that I bought from him with a scabbard he expertly crafted for it. It was about a year in the making as well as the aforementioned 6 months of waiting before NZ customs released them to me. Here are the pictures.

Nice little collection there. I also like the early wavy bladed gunong with great burled hilt (needs a little etch), and I like that barong with the horn/kamagong hilt and bone/ivory inlays (I always love the contrasts).

I am so glad you got your pieces and that you are happy with the work.
