Which is a fair enough description, but not a name.

"Kapak Istiadat Bali Perak" = axe tradition Bali silver = traditional Balinese silver axe


This is what the current version of these things looks like. Pretty pragmatic, pretty effective. Balinese men carry these just about all the time when engaged on banjar business (banjar = local neighbourhood association to which all married men belong).

I use the top one in my yard as a tool for casual pruning & etc. Pretty useful.
