Very nice older barong. My guess it is from Samal. The carvings on the pommel are similar to mine and mine is Samal.

I'd say you got a good deal on that Detlef. If i had seen that auction i might have given you a bidding war.
Still looking for the right barong for the right price.

Good that you haven't seen it! I am sure you will find one by time. To be open I never have thought that I will get it by this price.
