Golok Sumatra Kembang Kacang Metok 0719.

Golok Sumatra Kembang Kacang Metok 0719 � A rare example of a short sword or golok from the central or southern region of Sumatra. Handle is made of hard black wood  having a thick round brass guard, with wooden sheath also made of the same black woods.

Thick and very sturdy blade with a double sharp edge at the top. The base has a well executed kembang kacang (elephant trunk) usually seen with kerises, and it is also having a base ferrule or metok, usually seen on spears or tombaks.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique and are of the adeg or standing variations which is said to be of the protective nature.

Condition: Very good condition.

Age:  Krises and other edge weapons from the region 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 middle 19th century.

Length of blade: 19".   Overall length: 25".

Price:- US$310 excluding shipping.
