Default Sarawak Parang with brass ferrule

I really like these massive handles. Simple and no sophisticated carvings but with an overall impressive shape!

Happy holidays and healthy and good 2009!

I am not 100% sure that this one is Iban but it looks like Sarawak anyway.
It seems like a great blade and scabbard as well, if you don't mind sharing?

OK agree Michael, I edited the word Iban in Sarawak.
I hope because of this thread we can figure out if this is iban or not.
Enclosed some pics of the scabbard and of the blade. The blade is decorated the same on both sides.
