Default PAKARANG KASOENDAN (Weapons of the Soenda)

Hullo everybody!
The following may be useful:

Pakarang Tjatoerangga, the four quintessential implements of the praboe(=warrior-noble) class.
Please excuse the poor-quality picture; it’s merely for simple illustration.
Referring from left to right:


1.Pedang Abet Pamoek (=leader’s sabre)
In this case:
Name: Ki Panoenggoel
Desc: Pedang Tilam Woewoengan SOEMEDANGLARANG 19thC .
Char: Djekong .
Blade: LxOALxWxT=58X69.53.04X0.83cm. Curved; Distal-taper.
Handle: Silver Toemang w/ ruby eyes.

Sheath: Silver w/ embossed widjaja.


2.Golok (=bush-knife)
In this case:

Comments: Gobang is a long golok kitted out as a sword, thus lighter but still functional as a bush-knife.
