This thread was fascinating to read, the history of military klewangs, beautifully recounted by Kronckew in his post with outstanding contributions and illustrations by Ferylaki and Bill Marsh.
In the last words of the post, the question on the age of the klewang was well placed, but no response was ever made. It would be interesting to know more on the history of the klewang that led to these military versions.
Can anyone note earliest known examples and history of the klewang in development?
