Great find!

Those are very rare.
And a nice Pakayun with interesting decorations on the scabbard too.

Dajak, I've made it a point to view all your facinating posts particularly pertaining to Borneon stuffs. Certainly a rare find as for your other pakayuns etc. David McCredie and G C Wolley, both former curators for the Sabah Museum were known for their large collections and to have brought some stuffs over to London and I wonder if some pakayuns were amongst them. However a large part of Wolley's collection formed the "foundation collection" of the incipient Sabah museum and McCredie was said to have traded off much of his.
