Default Mishmi tribe sword

A second one acquired this year.
A mishmi tribe sword, also known as "Deng from Tibet and Aruchanal Pradesh".
Those peoples were head hunters, and slave sellers.
My informations on that one are scarce.
Wood seems lacquered, there is dyed human hair, an old red inventory number on the hilt (sadly fadded), and an interesting rattan work.
Complete sword with belt, blade is a little bent from the quenching process, hairpin, and razor sharp.
Again, have a great day,
