Early 20th Century Borneo Dyak Mandau Head
Hunter's Sword, sold
A good bone head / hilted, very early 20th Century Borneo Dyak
head hunter's sword (Mandau), in sound to good condition.
We guarantee this is an early 20C Dyak head hunter's sword, not
one of the hundreds of late 20C tourist pieces you find elsewhere.
The 49cm hand forged blade is firm in the hilt, the carved bone
hilt good but with age and damage commensurate with its age. A very
good buy. Further / full-sized pictures available upon request.
Please quote item reference number C75 (643).
