A fine Sikin Panjang with scabbard bound in silver straps, Northern Sumatra, Kelling Hall collection.

This nice example measures 74cms in the scabbard, 68cms out with a 54cm blade from the end of the stem ring.
The stem ring has nine sepals and has a 23mm dia. The blade has a 7mm spine at the stem ring and is 34mm wide. The shallow fuller near the spine runs for approx 34cms, the remainder of the blade is hollow ground fron the stem ring through to the tip.
The hilt is a well carved and incised Hulu Tumpang Beunteueng is approx 12.5cms and across mouth is 6cms.
The scabbard is decorated with superior inked motifs entirely to one side and to the other side, three expertly done ink motifs and what appears to be a panel of incised Islamic script. The scabbard is bound with 15 silver straps and 2 copper straps being one at each end. The scabbard throat is full and carved with floral releif.
A very interesting light and attractive fighting sword.
