Sampir is a typical boxy form from Terengganu, from the first half of 20th cent., more likely second quarter. Also the binding on Batang is quite often seen, I have two Terengganu Malela with such binding.

Pendokok is a genuinely Terengganu. The carving on hilt (and Buntut) is a little bit unusual, but the slanted head and overall form is typical for Terengganu.

The blade is only part, which isn' t distinctively from Terengganu. It lacks the "sweet" Luk typical for Terengganu and without dress could perhaps be given also Riau.
