Thank you for posting more images of your mandau Cerjak!
Very nice piece, and very similar like one I have.
They both must be coming from the same area. Yours has an antler handle and mine is a wooden handle. It seems that your handle once had hair in it. Mine probably only had hair at the "nose" attached with fiber. Also the blades are different. And mine was made from a lefthander.
But there are a lot of similarities. Like the shape of the handle, the carvings on the scabbard, and even the ratan knots are almost the same with that dual coloured brown and black ratan.

Does yours have still a sideknifescabbard at the backside and is myh observation right that the scabbard had been broken once in two pieces (or at least the front slab of wood?
