    Hi Bram,

    The first is an Indonesian Knife called a 'Renjong' I believe these are from the Acheh region. The hilt would have been 'L' shaped and is broken.

    The second and third are both Keris.

    The fourth is in a superficially Japanese style. Possibly a Chinese modern creation, possibly a south east Asian sword influenced by Japanese tradition.
    It's not possible for me to tell from the picture. I would suggest more pictures of all the items individually.
