Default Junggayan Barung

Hello,

Happy New Year to all!

My first acquired blade for 2022- a Junggayan Sulu (tausug)barung:

1) possible age/era?

The scabbard is newly made (by the former owner)- but I'm thinking of having a new one made that would be more 'fitting' and 'moro-like).

kind regards,

Yves

Hi Yves,

It's hard to see the pommel and hilt. Can you show a larger image of the hilt please, without so much shadow? From what is the "ferrule" made?

Ian.

Hello Yves.

Thanks for the additional pictures of the hilt which, as you indicated, is a 19th C junggayan form. The usual metal punto seems to have been replaced by a cloth wrap coated with a clear polyurethane or perhaps a two-part isocyanate polymer (such as Araldite(R)) to give it strength and hardness. It appears that the Kakatua pommel was once broken and has been repaired skillfully.
