Default A Cundrik from Lombok.

Hello All,

I picked this up a whole back but am only just now getting to posting it. I believe this would be called a cundrik, and that it is from Lombok. I don't know much about it, or the type. The fiittings seem to be made of brass

I do have a couple of impressions of this example.
1) The blade is ridiculously thick at the base. It also thickens again near the tip.
2) Despite, it's remarkably well balanced, and the handle feels very comfortable in the hang
3) The fullers near the base of the blade look an awful lot ricikan from a keris.

Any thoughts on the quality of age of this piece?
I'm happy to hear any and all opinions.

Thanks,
Leif
