I see about half a dozen of these intricately handled and scabbarded dha a year, still not sure where in Southeast Asia, Indonesia or Malaysia they're from. Mid to late 1900's.

note from a friend received 12/18/01, telling me that they were made in Thailand during the Vietnam War era. Thanks, Gandolf!
