Item 104 A Javanese kudi
The kudi is similar to the kujang, both in form and in the way that it was previously a
weapon a long time ago, but with the passage of time became a talismanic weapon
with generally protective powers, but not considered as being aligned with only the
needs of a farmer.
The kudi is mostly found in Java and Madura, especially in those areas of Central
Java that border on Sunda.
The kudi offered here has a good pamor sanak blade, obviously old, but unable to be
dated, it has a scabbard and hilt that have been carved with motifs that are found
along the North Coast of Java, especially in the area around Pekalongan.
Again from my collection, but I do not know with certainty when and where I
acquired it. Very probably Java, that's about as good as I can do.
Blade length 6.6" (165mm.) overall length 11.25" (285mm.) $140
