Thumbs up

Hello Ben,

The rare blade certainly is a show stopper!

However, the wooden hilt seems to be very nicely carved and IMHO deserves some added emphasis! Could you please add a few close-ups of it, too?

Regards,
Kai

BTW, this hilt seems to originate from Kutai, doesn't it, Ben?

A pic of the reverse side and close-ups of the hilt would be great! Thanks, Ben!
