You are most welcome Jim!

There are people around with far more detailed knowledge than I have. Unfortunately, they don't post here. Perhaps they visit anonymously from time to time.

SE Asia, mainland and the islands, can be a complex and difficult area for the sword collector, and one where indigenous knowledge is often guarded closely. No matter if the religious flavor be Muslim, Christian, or Buddhist, there is a strong "folk" element to the local beliefs, with magic and animal spirits being incorporated into more traditional religious doctrines.
