Thumbs up

Hello SÚverin,

The close-up, sorry I didn't manage to do better.

No worries, these are good enough to verify that this blade is a genuine, typical LP blade of considerable age! I probably never was a high-end piece (some decorations are missing) but more of a modest/decent quality; still, it deserves real Batak fittings rather than the current parody it came with. I'd hide the scabbard in a drawer and even consider to remove the whole hilt: This might sound like a drastic approach but I'm sure it will do the blade justice and arguably make a better display for a cultural fossil...

BTW, please do post pics of the additional LP once it arrives!

Regards,
Kai
