Default BEDOK

Sorry Rumpel,

It's not a bendo but a bedok! And when you state that it coming from Java as island you are correct but it's a Sunda blade and not common by Javanese people. For all other informations see please here: http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showthread.php?t=21948 It's an utility knife.

Regards,
Detlef

Detlef, I took the info from Albert Zonnevelds book. However, having checked several more authoritative sources of information, I must say that you are right. This knife is bedok.
