ARTIFACT: This is a 1930's or earlier Mandau "Headhunter" Sword, or parang ihlang, of the Dayak Tribes of Borneo. It was likely obtained and brought back after WWII. In everyday life, it's used as a machete, but was also used in headhunting traditions, hence the nickname given to it.

VINTAGE: Ca. 1930's

SIZE: Approximately 32-1/2" x 1-1/4" x 5" at the widest point of the handle.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Iron meteorite ore (including titanium), Bone handle (possibly from the indigenous deer of Borneo)



ITEM NOTES: This is from a Sword collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MCEJX17 LHEJX02/17

CONDITION: 6+ (Fine-Very Fine): The hilt and scabbard rate higher, but the blade needs cleaning.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
