Original Dutch East Indies Indonesian Silver Mounted Warriors Short Sword - c.1880

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a typical example of the short swords used in what is today Indonesia. It has a single edge leaf-shaped 12 1/2 inch long blade, made of what appears to be Wootz or Damascus steel. This is a crucible-made laminated steel, and is very common in the Eastern Pacific Islands. It has a very characteristic tropical tiger-flame figured wood pommel, with a silver clad grip section. The overall length is 20 inches.

Dating from the 1870's or 1880's, the Silver grip indicated the owner to be of some status. A deadly weapon but with its highly polished and well figured wood pommel, a dagger/short sword of really some beauty.

There is a small chip to the wood pommel but still ready to display.
