Love the story behind the Borneo Kriss.
Thanks for catching the "missing" Jambiya label - had it in my notes but forgot to type in.
As to the "sleeve knife" - I've looked for a couple years on the internet to ID this piece and the closest I could get, based up the triangular blade is what I posted. PLEASE give me some hints on where to look for info on bladed weapons so I can get better IDs. The leather sheath for that triangular piece kind of throws me, especially with the shaped tail. Thanks.
