Parang Jengok Kelantan Ulu Kenaung 0820.

Parang Jengok Kelantan Ulu Kenaung 0820   A rare form of broad sword or parang from the northern Malaysian peninsular region called the parang jengok or parang ginah. Handle is made of hard and dark ebony woods called kenaung in Malay and has a stupa tip.

Long and very sturdy blade with a thick base and a very arcing profile and a pointy tip; features typical of the parang jengok.

Blade is pattern welded, but not using contrasting metals which is the norm of the region.

Condition: Fairly good condition. Aside from very minor surface rust spots, and patching at the handle, rest is all in 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 to late 18th century.

Length of blade: 13.5".   Overall length: 19.5".

Price:- US$270 excluding shipping.
