(2).The bigger mandau from Dayaks at Modang , Bahau, kenja,Penhing and Poenan (central Dajaks in the Koetai Aboveland-Benedenlanden van Koetai).

2.The original Mandau was used by the Dayaks commander of Chief-Si Ramboet Kawat . The best mandau in Koetei were made at the native Kenja-fabric by Poh-Kedjin, locatated at vthe mountain at central Borneo near Kajan-river, the price was fbetween 10-12 Guldens, for the best quality was 50 Guldens.

    Ada baiknya jika ditambah bacaan dari buku ” The Natives Of Sarawak and British North Borneo” oleh HENRY LING ROTH, London, Trustlove & Hanson, 1896, memang tidak jauh berbeda antara mandau dayak Indonesia dengan dayak Malaysia.
