Golok Jawa Adeg Tandok Perak.

Golok Jawa Adeg Tandok Perak A very good example of a short sword or golok from the central Javanese regions. Handle is made of deer horn and is encased at the base with finely repoussed silver alloy. Sheath is of wood and is fully encased with finely repoussed silver alloy.

Thick and very sturdy blade with single sharp edge that runs along the straight side. The surfaces of the blade are also concave in the middle.

Pamor patterns are condense and are arranged in the miring technique. Vertical line formations are called pamor adeg or standing pamor. It is said to protect the owner from natural mishaps.

Very good condition.

Age:  Krises and other edge weapons are traditionally made without any date stampings or engravings of the makers' name. Although a kris smith or "empu" has his own styles configured together with the dapor and especially the ganjar (cross piece). Obvious age wear and tear, usage, familiarity with forms, motifs and designs, origin and history, mediums and materials used are our guidelines in determining an approximate age. This particular piece,  from our experience and knowledge, should go back to the early 19th century blade and hilt, with mid 20th century sheath.

Length of blade: 18.8".   Overall length: 25".
