      Not my region of weapons knowledge, but I believe the style is Indian. believe that would be the right area to start your search.

      They tend to be tourist pieces from India and Southeast Asia. It's hard to say as they are documented like western military weapons..

      It's 'Kris'.

      A tourist version probably ..... Dutch occupation of 'Indonesia' ?

      I assume the blade is not curvy like a snake? I agree with vetraio50 about it's origin, but would guess the blade has been repurposed, possibly from a military knife.

      Chris, sorry I haven't been in touch much lately. They only allow me 20 mins on a puter here per day. Just kidding & wondering how long I can stretch your leg? I think your answer is probably right & should have thought of that earlier. Opps, my 20 mins is up! LOL!!!

      hey i also have a sword with klm89 imprinted on it, i think it might be a maker.

      mine is a scimitar, however yours appears to be a decorative sword of middle eastern origin
