Flying blades

A form of Malay magic that sees weapons such as keris, machete, knife and spear being mobilised against the enemies – without any human carrying it. In other words, they fly on their own. Allegedly, anthropologists had witnessed this, or had heard first accounts of this phenomenon. It has been said that it’s a magic that makes the assailant carrying the weapon invisible to the eyes of the enemy. The flying blade myth co-exists with the legend woven around the mysterious Red Sash vigilante mobs. The type of machete allegedly used by the Banjarese for this end was the parang bungkol.
