West Borneo sword

A typical sword from West Borneo , sometimes called " Tilang Kamerau"

The motifs in the carved antler hilt with drilled holes , a feature that looks like work from the 

tribes around Sanggau end 19th century.

The "show side" is very well carved while the other side is more simple.

The scabbard is very nice with a high rise central rib with a mixture of many different motifs.

The blade of the typical TK style  with inlays on the spine.

Bands of red dyed rattan.

Some restore.
