Default "Golok" Toraja ?

Hello,
I recently acquired this golok. I think Toraja origin because the work of the pamor and sheath are identical to those of the Penai.
I had never seen one before. Do you have information about this type of golok?
Length of the blade: 35,5cm

Hello Severin,
have seen this type of working sword from the Toraja region from time to time. They are similar to the Dua Lalans, similar blade shape and similar scabbard style.

Regards,
Detlef

Ok thank you Detlef,
Of course I meant "Dua lalan" and not "Penai", I reversed both in my mind.
