Default Help with Malay Sword I.D.

I've had this blade for a while and could never quite figure it's exact origin. I've seen similar shapes to the blade and pommel, but every time I run across a similar handle it has a generic Malaysian or Indonesian origin. If so, is it Borneo? Sumatra? Celebes? In the book Traditional Weapons of the Indonesian Archipelago on page 72 the Klewang Tebal Hujong looks similar, but I was hoping to get some input from other forumites on this blade. The overall length of this is 2 feet long.
