Default Indonesian machete

Hello everybody,
I got this machete, I think it's indonesian but where exactly ?!

I saw some old posts on vikingsword with this kind of weapon but I couldn't find them.
The handle is interesting ,
a snake ? Devil ? head shape ?

Thank you

Borneo, I think Sarawak.

The handle is a dragon (aso) motif

Nice working piece, not a weapon.
not old, but authentic. I like it

Well it is not a parang latok. I would just call it a parang.

The bend blade is not bad for chopping small trees / branches.
You can use it in the garden
