Default Indonesian knife for identification

I just have bought an Indonesian knife by epray but I am unsure how to call it and from where it is. It is inside scabbard 10-7/8" with a blade of 7-1/4". Any help and comment would be very appreciated.

Thank you as well Willem! I know that I have seen one before somewhere but can't remember where and was very unsure if I am correct.

Maybe someone have a similar one and can post pictures.

Detlef
