No worries, Detlef!

I haven't compared, it's not my own blade. But I haven't ruled out a Bugis origin, the pamor could be a hint.
IMHO, this pamor does not look like what we usually see coming out of Sulawesi; and, if anything, keris sundang are extremely rare...

It's a more as unusual blade, also at this point I agree with you completely but my feeling refuses to accept a recent manufacture for this blade, otherwise I would agree with you. Such a black corrosion I see by the first pictures coming not in a few years.
I'd love to be proven wrong! Collectors sometimes tend to be a bit too paranoid...
