id say its still very much the standard in sumba, other islands maybe not so. but in sumba its quite typical on any weapon, some ruder goloks than sell for 2 or 3$ maybe now they are steel pipe, but generally the parangs are still considered da primary item of defence/offence there and are used to sacrefice water buffalo aswell, here you can see horn furrels still used. these swords arnt costly but regular parangs https://youtu.be/kbW-T-l0fKA
