The blade is mostly made of tempered metals, with exquisite vine-works and inlaid brass. The hilt is made from animal horns, such as deer's
horns, although some variations with human bones and fragrant wood also
have been found. Both the hilt and scabbard are elaborately carved and
plumed. Details of carvings vary from tribe to tribe, but mostly depict
creatures or, if human bones were used, anthropomorphic deities. A
Mandau is often accompanied with a whittling knife, generally referred
to as pisau.
