A good old Rencong from Northern Sumatra.

This Rencong measures 39cms long with a blade length of 28cms long including the stem ring.
The hilt is a type known as puntung. It is made from a very finely grained horn and is quite large and bulbous. Its pommel is both pierced and carved while the other end carries a simple old bronze collar.
The blade is of a long slender form, a thick spine, sharp edge and needle point. Its forged pattern welded steel surfaces are seen on both the faces and the spine.

A good early Rencong.
