Default any images of Madagascan swords?

any images of Madagascan swords?
ive seen knives and there is some veriety but its hard to see the south east asian influence.. although theyer not really entirely african looking either..
many seem to have a large blade like a french chefs style knife.. some can be 40 or 50 cm long and with a wooden or cast brass handle.. others ive seen have a leaf shaped blade and a wood or horn handle... still others re a bit like the rattan knive sin south east asia.. theyer a upcurved knife blade on a long handle..

but ive only ever seen one image tagged as a madagascan sword and it looks like a dabh blade on a short wooden handle almost.. although its unclear if its an imported blade by the image .. if i locate it ill uploaded it..
