Thanks for sharing! I was in Indonesia in 1997, Lombok to be precise. There I bought a new parang in a small traditional village. These are/were made there from old truck leaf springs.

Hi Ron,

It is indeed a formidable weapon. The first time I saw one was at a flea market in Den Bosch in 1990. The man asked 50 guilders. I had little interest in it at the time, and it wasn't just...

It doesn't seem very active at the moment so don't think I'll put a lot of time and effort into preserving it. If you want to do that well, you have to put it in demineralized water for a longer...

Shin gunto question

The VOC pendant from my previous thread came together with this shin gunto type 98. It has had a visibly tough life. It is signed under the handle, but no matter how hard I try, I can't figure out...

Thanks for your comment! I also think the handle is a monster, but since this doesn't quite fit in my collection, I'm probably going to part with it. I then leave it to the new owner to embellish the...

I hadn't noticed that before, but you're right. The C is very similar to the O.

I don't think it happened recently but it won't be very old either. The man I bought it from clearly had no idea. He'd had it in the attic for years. It had belonged to his father-in-law, who...
