Minangkabau sword

Nice old sword from the Padang highlands

The wooden hilt with protruding tongue in simple style.

The blade shows a very nice antique patina and has some engraved motifs on both sides.

The original scabbard even has the original chain to lock the sword into postion.

This is the first I have in years complete with original scabbard.


Sumatra,  Payakumbuh area.


Mid 19th century

Size total:  54 cm

Blade: 38  cm.
