I do not intend to remove the paint on the rattan, because I am too afraid of damaging the braiding.
I'm just thinking of putting some linseed oil on the braiding because the rattan feels dry.

For the paint, yes it seems to have originally covered the entire handle.
The rattan braiding must have dried and retracted because it is moving a bit. I was thinking of trying on a small area with...

I've never seen the rattan braiding from an Indonesian hilt covered with paint, (I just see lacquered), that's why I thought it was not local but a modification out of the original cultural context.

Hello,
I agree with Jean.
I think the lower part of the Selut may be turned upside down. Usually the "crown of small flowers" is not in direct contact with the blade, but is placed higher, near the...

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.

For me the cundrik is a really different weapon, shorter and with a double edge. Besides, the only cundrik...

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.
