Item 105                  A Javanese Cundrik

The cundrik is a very ancient weapon, the form dates back into pre-history, little is
known about it, but in Java it is a purely talismanic weapon with generally protective
qualities and links to ancestor worship. It has been researched and commented on by
Tammens.

The cundrik offered here has a blade that is an excellent example of the form, it is
clearly very old, but there is no way of knowing how old.

The wrongko and hilt are village workmanship in the style of a Jogjakarta gayaman
keris.

Blade length  7.5" (190mm.)     overall length  12.25" (311mm.)
