A very good Sumatran Keris Panjang.

Just over 69cms in the sheath, just under 65cms out with a blade length of 54cms.
The hilt is free from loss or damage and shows a very fine timber grain and floral carvings to the end.
The blade is thick at the base and tapers very nicely to the tip, it tapers in profile at the base and remains unsharpened at this point. As the blade widens again the edges are sharpened.
There is a pronounced medial ridge running from this point through to the tip and the surfaces show good forging laminations.
The sheath is also made from the same fine grained timbers and remains in very good condition. It is bound by four silver straps in four positions and is capped to the base in silver.

A very fine example in very good condition and very well priced.
