golok? on steroids
Do you know what is this???
It's very long 1m....
Thought I'd lighten up the picture for you Kubur.
Thank you Battara Jose
It is a pedang Lar Bango from Jawa.
The form is more like a pedang Suduk Maru, but it is far too long for a Suduk Maru.
Both Lar Bango & Suduk Maru are very scarce.
The dress looks recent, which is normal. It is extremely rare to find an old pedang in old dress. Pedangs were actually used in combat, unlike keris which were only used as a last resort, thus as soon as a pedang was drawn the scabbard was dropped.
It's very interesting, thank you.
I was thinking that it was a fantasy sword because of the ridiculous dragon head then I saw some golok with such grotesque heads...
As you said the wood doesnt look old (mid 20th?)
But the blade is very massive, sharp and of a very good quality.
There is a strong forged backedge like a khanda sword.
The blade has a shape of a yataghan...
