Rencong, Northern Sumatra, Kelling Hall collection.

A gorgeous and unusual example of the Sumatran Rencong. Overall in the sheath it is just under 41cms long, out it is 37cms with a 25cms blade not including the stem ring/bolster. The blade is 10mm thick in front of the stem ring and in profile is slender with a downward curve to the tip and lacks the traditional broad duru seuke.
The hilt although simple in design, shows wonderful quality with a luminous glow, particuarly to the end.
The wooden sheath has small losses to the tip of the throat. It shows nice carved and incised floral decoration to both sides of the sheath.
A very comfortable rencong in the hand with a good balance point just forward of the stem ring.
