Golok Jawa Tri Warna 0220.

Golok Jawa Tri Warna 0220 - A good and rare example of a short broad knife or golok from the eastern Javanese region. Handle and top sheath are made from very well selected well grained hard woods having weaved rattan bindings at the outer stem.

Single edge blade is rather broad and short, having the sharp edge in the straight side, features attributed to the golok of the region.

Pamor pattern are rare and are arranged in the miring technique showing three different pattern arrangements, and is called tri warna or tri colored.

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 early to mid 19th century blade and sheath, with newly made handle.

Length of blade: 11.5".   Overall length: 17.5".
