A good complete example of the classic Lombok Parang.

The Lombok Parang is a massively underappreciated and often mis-identified weapon.
This example is remains in good condition overall. It is 59cms long in its scabbard, 57.5cms out and has a blade length of 43cms.
The uniquely carved "cockatoo" pommel is of a rarely seen form. Overall, the profile is of the traditional form, however, the detail within is most unusual for the type, perhaps unique to a specific region within the island or simply the craftsman’s trademark.
The thick heavy blade shows nice laminated pamor patterning to the surfaces and spine and it remains in very good condition for its age.
The hilt is dressed in both silver and Suasa, whilst the scabbard is dressed solely in silver sheet.

A nice old fighting sword from the island of Lombok, a type which is becoming harder to find in any condition.
