Golok Sumatra Pamor Unthuk Walang 0719.

Golok Sumatra Pamor Unthuk Walang 0719 � A very good example of a short sword or golok from the central or southern region of Sumatra. Handle is made buffalo horn  having a thick round brass guard, with wooden sheath having the top and bottom tip also of buffalo horn.

Thick and very sturdy blade with a single sharp edge at the bottom quarter and a double sharp edge at the tip. It is also having chiseled steps at the base that's a characteristic of some Sumatran goloks.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique and are of the unthuk walang or grasshopper's teeth which is said to enhance the owner's status.

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: 18".   Overall length: 24".
