Pedang Tusuk Tempius Jawa Putut 0113.

Pedang Tusuk Tempius Jawa Putut 0113 – Very good and rare example of a stabbing sword or pedang tusuk from the central Javanese regions. Handle and sheath are made of wood and is fully encased with finely repoussed silver having a demonic like face at the top of the hilt usually associated to the Bintulu (guardian of the entrance to the other world).

Long, thick and very sturdy blade with the top half having double sharp edges to use as a stabbing weapon. The base of the blade has a rare sculpted figure in a meditating position called the Putut.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the kulit semangko or melon’s skin variations which is said to enhance the owner’s popularity.

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 late 19th century.

Length of blade: 19".   Overall length:
