Some extra pics of the arrow. The length is 51cm and made of bamboo.
Pretty short so I wonder if it's suitable as an arrow

This is the other mandau (see my other thread).
The handle is made of wood and quite simple. The blade is convex on the outside and hollow ground on the inside. When you look over the back, the...

Mandau for comment

Hello, I have received two mandaus here. Actually this is outside my collectible area but, as I couldn't resist them, I made a bid on the auction they were offered at and won them.
Of course I did...

I would only oil it lightly with ballistol or something similar. I don't see much rust or other deposits on it.

Does anyone have any idea what purpose these semicircular cutouts would have served?

A nice piece of wood has been used and the finish is also neat. It seems to me that this is a more recent adjustment by someone who, for some reason, still had a loose blade lying around.

Interesting discussion about the hook. I myself have a Dutch cavalry officers saber model 1813. This one also has this strange hook (see pictures).

Thanks for sharing! I was in Indonesia in 1997, Lombok to be precise. There I bought a new parang in a small traditional village. These are/were made there from old truck leaf springs.

Hi Ron,

It is indeed a formidable weapon. The first time I saw one was at a flea market in Den Bosch in 1990. The man asked 50 guilders. I had little interest in it at the time, and it wasn't just...

Klewang M1940??

Time to reopen this topic. Recently I bought a Klewang. It comes from a private individual who inherited it from her grandfather. Unfortunately, the woman was unable to tell how her grandfather came...

It doesn't seem very active at the moment so don't think I'll put a lot of time and effort into preserving it. If you want to do that well, you have to put it in demineralized water for a longer...

Shin gunto question

The VOC pendant from my previous thread came together with this shin gunto type 98. It has had a visibly tough life. It is signed under the handle, but no matter how hard I try, I can't figure out...

Thanks for your comment! I also think the handle is a monster, but since this doesn't quite fit in my collection, I'm probably going to part with it. I then leave it to the new owner to embellish the...

I don't think it happened recently but it won't be very old either. The man I bought it from clearly had no idea. He'd had it in the attic for years. It had belonged to his father-in-law, who...

Thank you all for the advice! I'll just leave it as it is. I will also leave the grip alone for now.
