19th Century Borneo Dyak Mandau Head Hunter's
Complete with companion knife, this is an excellent Borneo Dyak
Mandau in very good condition, repair to hilt.
An excellent head hunter's sword in very good condition, except
for the repair to the hilt (the bone had cracked as is common and
one part had obviously come away / has been filled / repaired).
The 55cm blade with cut out designs, geometric inscriptions and
brass / copper disc inserts show this to be one the best quality
blades available. The bone and animal (probably monkey) hair hilt
is superb, except for said repair which blends well with the original.
The rattan and carved bone scabbard / sheath is very aged but sound
and in good condition for its age. Complete with original companion
A great piece and investment. Further / full-sized pictures available
upon request. Please quote item reference number C91 (692)
