    unknown sword

    Does anyone have any ideas on this?
    The closest I have found was a tang dynasty sword.

    Not at all like a Tang dynasty sword. Looks modern, and given where it came from, probably an Indonesian sword.

    To repeat my comments in my reply to the thread linked above:

    How long is it? How heavy is the blade? How thick, near the tang and near the tip?
