Default Barungs with Carabao Horn Ferrule

Greetings everyone. I'm just wondering if anyone has samples of barungs with carabao horn ferrules. I've seen a couple of samples during posts of yesteryears, but they were too few and far in between. I hope some kind-hearted souls here can allow a peek into their carabao-horn ferrule beauties =) thanks in advance!

Dear Sir:

That's a barung that exhudes elegance. Thanks for sharing!

Cool

Hello Ron,

Your's looks really interesting and seems to be a real Moro version rather than one of those styles which tend to get associated with Borneo and thereabouts.

Regards,
Kai

Here's my example.

BTW, only barung or also other Moro pieces with horn ferrule?

Indeed. I have no barung with horn ferrule, though I do have a couple Gunongs with horn ferrules that I'd be happy to show pics of.

Thanks,
Leif

Perhaps post your gunongs in a new thread.

Thanks for these wonderful samples everyone! I was just curious as I've never seen or held one in person.
