Hullo Jean,

Just to make sure that there is no misunderstanding: by 'local terminology', I mean local to Banjarmasin/South Kalimantan.

The above form was one of the three typical for this area and quite common. There are still many around, you just have to know where to look. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the current blade-makers' kerises came supplied them.
Among the Sunda, it is, how can I put it, 'well-known esoterically'(?).
