A Unique Silver Mounted Parang
This parang needed a lot of clean up to make it as "blingy" as it certainly originally was. The silver work is not particularly impressive, especially on the hilt. The silver is an alloy with somewhat strong silver content. The blade and its pamor are quite attractive.
I can't help but wonder here if the blade is an older remount to later silver fittings.
Does anyone have an idea of the age of the piece as it is now?
Overall length: 27.5in.
Blade length: 22in.
Blade width at the center of the blade: 1.25in.
