Lol, no, it isn't a Dayak weapon and it coming not from Borneo but from West Java, Sunda. It's a golok.

Hi "27":

While the naming of your weapon has been established, I think folks have forgotten to note that it is quite a nice example of its type--nothing very fancy, but a well forged blade, nicely carved hilt and a complete scabbard. I would say probably circa 1900, or a little later.The Tjikeroeh ("TJIKR" and other variations) mark was quite common in the early 20th C, referring to the town of the same name in W. Java that was known for its making of knives and swords. A number of western style swords and knives were made under this mark, presumably for Dutch colonial residents and travelers.

Ian.

Hi Ian,
not really, the scabbard mouth is missing as well the attachment for the belt loop.

I think it's a little bit older, late 19th century until very early 20th century would be my guess, see the last link I've provided.
