Hi David,

Poleng motif or Kotak-kotak motif can be translated to Checkered motif.

I believe it is easier to remember if we know the meaning of the pamor's name.

Cheers,

Based on my limited knowledge:

Dhapur: Karna Tinandhing
Pamor: Dadung Muntir

Since you said the length of the blade is 50 cm then it can be considered as Corok.
