From the southern Thailand region of Patani, Chenook, this extremely rare example has the hilt encased with silver and in the form called the coteng. Rarer than the tajong or kingfisher, but sharing similarities and form, showing NOT a bird, but a squatting figurine with nasal horn, teeth and fangs etc.
The sheath is made from a single piece of well grained kemuning wood without any joints or “seiras” in Malay, with the bottom stem having plain silver bands.
Very sturdy blade is straight or lurus, with plain base features or perabot and an overall shape or dapor called bahari in Malay.
Pamor patterns are forged in the miring technique showing a line at the middle of one side of the blade called pamor lidi, and the “crystalline” or “homogenous” effect seen is called pamor miang in Malay.
