A Dayak headhunter's sword- Borneo
A heavy mandau with antler grip from the Dayak people of Borneo island. The plaited belt on the scabbard is still there as is the small scabbard for the side-knife. The small knife itself is missing. The blade is very thick and heavy. This is truly a jungle work-horse. Quite strong oxidation in general but almost clean along the cutting edge. What might appear as pitted holes are in fact imperfections from the forging. Total length 68cm. Reduced in price from 850 euro to 675 euro.
