Yes those are naga, and what a wonderful blade at that!

Would you post pictures of the whole think (including hilt)?

Kino, nice one too - pommel looks Samal, though need a better picture of it to tell for sure.

Great dragons and centipedes!
Here is one of mine we discussed in an earlier thread.
Seems like centipedes are attracted to shandigans?

Default talismatic kris

I have this lovely 19th century kris with talismatic incriptions. I'd like to post some pics of the kris and ask for some opinions. but I do not know how.

This is my first post. Hope you can assist.

Thanks

Rey

As a complete outsider on these weapons I will take a guess and since I was looking at war canoes it does appear that what could be a "from that region" craft with the curved bows marked and of catamaran form with warriors down each flank and the central planking or walkway with the chief navigator and captain/leader . the concept needs a seascape and I think a few inches down the blade you have just that.. but out of frame... at the stern more warriors shown . a fully armed and manned war canoe is my suggestion...

The war canoe best fitting that description is shown below and may be Maori but it gets across my point.
