Klewang Sumatra Ukiran 0719.

Klewang Sumatra Ukiran 0719   A rare example of a broad sword or parang or klewang of Sumatra in origin (Zonenveld pg. 70).  Finely carved wooden  handle having a silver ferrule, with similar style carvings on the wooden sheath, has the opening from the top where the blades slides in from.

Thick and very sturdy blade with a slight arcing profile and a broad top half with an unusual flat tip.

Pamor arranged in the 
miring technique and are of the adeg, or standing variations, with a circumference pamor wengkon. Both the pamor adeg and the pamor wengkon is said to protect the owner. 

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 blade, with late 20th century sheath.

Length of blade: 18".   Overall length: 26".

Price:- US$400 excluding shipping.
