A fine and heavy fighting sword from the Lombok regions.

This example measures just over 66cms sheathed. Out it is 65cms long with a blade length of 49cms.
The large simple cockatoo shaped pommel is carved from a very dark timber with a deep rich patina to its surfaces.
The grip is bound in sheet silver with decorated bands of brass with a gilt like sheen, possibly Suassa.
The Blade is a very heavy type for its size with a thick spine, a very sharp cutting edge and a strong forward curving point.
The spine and faces of the blade show very a nice Pamor patterning.

A very good example of the type.
