Thank you again Amuk,

I really think that you are very correct by all observations. The sword I've posted seems indeed from very recent manufacture and I think that the coins are similar to the one you have shown, I know this coins from own handling many times before.
The blade is 0,25 Inch (0,6 cm) thick near the handle!
And thank you again for proving a "name" for this type of swords. Do you know also which use was given to this swords?

Regards,
Detlef

Hullo Detlef,

Thanks for your response.(I was just about to go offline )
The isaw was the precursor to the njaboer. It was their implement before they were driven out by the Kajaan/Kenjah. They only got the njaboer after their interaction with the Bandjar while they were in "exile", prior to their returning to assert themselves.

Best,

Sorry, but the overall brown patina on this example is not my idea of "real antique"
Same goes for the hacksaw markings.

I am going to leave this discussion now.

Best regards,

Hello Willem,

I assume that Detlef refers to AMís linked thread rather than the pics hosted on the other linked site. AMís pic does not show much detail but seems to be a younger example by his own definition?

Any really old example available - pics, anyone?

Regards,
Kai

Arrow Dallas Museum of Art

In the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art is a similar sword.
See one of the photos on https://www.artoftheancestors.com/borneo.
Unfortunately, I don't have any additional information on this sword, not even an inventory number.

No, Detlef refers to the link was given from Willem. But he have seen it only on his smartphone and don't look again to the sword on a pc screen again and and have overlooked the ironic comment from Willem and may have been still under shock from a heavy car accident he have had a few days before. Sorry about any confusion! Of course he agree complete with Willem!

Unfortunately not. There is nothing to describe this sword on the site that Albert referenced.
