Inland Dayak Tradtional weapons :
Niabor, with a curved blade traditional weapons. The edge curves towards the back to the tip. Just below the hilt, on the edge, is a large krowit (also called kundieng). The blade is not decorated and may have a groove. The hilt has a long angled protrusion and no hair.
Langgai Tinggang, which means “the longest tail feather of the hornbill.”, similar to the Niabor. Furthermore, the hilt is similar to the traditional weapons Parang Ilang. A groove runs along the blade from the krowit to the tip. The krowit is not as protruding as on the Naibor and is further from the hilt.
Jimpul, similar to the Langgai Tinggang. However, the krowit is only developed on one side. The tip of the blade is in a slanting angle.
