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'(?).

Hello Amuk,
Thank you and sorry for my misinterpretation . If you have pictures of the other types of Banjarmasin warangkas, they will be welcome, I only know of the rounded 'kidney' style one a bit similar to the Yogya gayaman style.
Best regards
