A very nice Iban Pedang, Borneo 19th century.

This fine old example measures 80cms long with a 67cm blade.
The hilt is a very finely cast and well detailed example of considerable weight and nice decorative features.
The blade is a fine triple fullered example with good distal taper and caries a 16cm back edge.
A very nice sword in the hand.

Apart from being used by the Iban tribal members, a photographic example of this type of sword is seen in the hands of the chief executioner of the Sarawak constabulary which a digital image can be made available for the buyer.
