Default RENCONG SCABBARD - translation request

Inspired by Gustav's splendid sikin, I found that I still have some pictures of a rencong scabbard with inscription.

Hopefully this will be something ledgible.

Best regards,
Willem

Bumping for some kind assistance on this (IMHO) unusual inscription.

One person who might be able to translate the jaws is out of commission temporarily.

I must agree Willem - not an original (or traditional) hilt.

Hi Willem,

The first sentence is legible enough to be translated. It reads :

"Sarung sikin (?) Tengku Fishar" or "Sikin (?) sheath of Tengku Fishar (Fashar?)"

I hope this helps. I could not make up the second sentence though.
