19C Super Fine Borneo Dyak Mandau (Head Hunter's Sword)

Sales enquiries

Probably the finest Dyak Mandau we have seen; enough said (this statement and the photos say everything).

The heavy well engraved 23 3/4 inch blade is in very good condition and no brass circles missing. Blade firm in carved tropical wood hilt. The hilt with minor damage. The animal hair still plentiful and good. The scabbard is split down the seams, but is otherwise very good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

An exceptional museum quality piece. Yours for a paltry £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference P20 (0209). Further / full sized images upon request.
