Default Pedang from Sumatra ?

I just picked up this very sharp, heavy, cleaver like pedang; any comments would be appreciated.

Hello Drack,

could just as well be from Lombok, do a little bit search here on the forum, you will find similar examples, I have two byself. Nice horn carving at the handle. Can you see lamination in the blade? Nice example!

Regards,
Detlef

Thanks; there could be some lamination, but I'm not sure.
