want to buy or swap for a Parang nabur

I am interested in buying a parang nabur at a realistic price, or swapping a genuine Wakizashi in polish and well mounted for such.

The very wide and square topped split in the skirt makes me think it's Sudanese in origin.

Excellent and thank you. I have used the same, but in my experience it has to be the "full fat" sugary version, not the low cal.
