Hello,

Nice Sewar.
I' don't know for the blade (I love the rounded base) but for me the scabbard is not very old.

3 Sewars for comment

Hello, this year I acquired these 3 Sewars.

Is it possible, depending on one's style, to find a more precise origin than simply Sumatra?

Just to compare, here is my Wedung. It is of course much more recent (I suppose XIXth century). The previous owner polished the blade but it does not seem to have pamor.

Thank you for all your opinions.
It is true that I hadn't thought to look at the length of the blade (47cm approximately) and it should have already directed me to a blade of Balinese origin.

Hello,

For me the silver parts are younger. For the origin I think Sulawesi or Java (the mouth of the scabbard with the little hook is in Javanese style).
