Item #: 1002-207 -- A Moro Sondang, ca. 1900 -- $425.00
A good Moro fighting sondang with hardwood cockatoo head pommel. The grip of rattan with upper and lower ferrules of incised white metal. Straight handforged blade, very sharp, with separately forged ganja with interesting and unusual dovetail fitted into the blade and fine filework. Single baca, probably a working life replacement. This blade should yield a pattern if properly etched. Overall GC; the hilt snug and tight, minor chipping to pommel (old). The blade with dark mottling but no significant pitting. The scabbard lacking. Overall 67.2 cm., blade 51.7 cm.
