Item 102 A superb old Javanese Pedang Suduk (stabbing sword), pamor is
Lawe Pinuntir Winengku, a scarce and complex pamor miring. Pedangs lack the
indicators that we find on keris, so any classification is purely a matter of
experience & opinion. In my opinion this pedang is Surakarta, mid-19th century.
It is a very high quality pedang in excellent condition.
I believe the scabbard and hilt to be younger than the blade, most likely first
half 20th century. This scabbard and hilt are of high content solid silver and of a
quality at least equal to the quality of the blade. The style of scabbard and hilt
are typically Central Java.
This is an old pedang of outstanding quality and in superb condition. I bought
it from a dealer in Pasar Beringhardjo in Jogjakarta in 1975.
Blade length 18.75" (527mm) overall length 26.15 (663mm) $950
