  PEDANG LUWUK, AN INDONESIAN SWORD MUSEUM'S WORTHY

This Java Island’s “Luwuk” (Sword) has a short heavy blade with a cutting edge and a slightly concave back and a blade heavier in the center with a curved point at the tip. Golok Lurus means "Sultan Guard" (Golok is a kind of cleaver).

This is a "PEDANG LUWUK" from the Central Java Island in Indonesia, which it's believed to have special powers as it was made with dedicated rituals. It was used only for the nobility and the Sultan knights. Even it has a handmade printing of 3 letters on the top of the blade, which probably were the initials of its original owner.

This 'luwuk', with its gorgeous carved grip figuring a falcon head and the no less beautiful carved scabbard, both made from horn wood, comes from the Indonesian "Pajajaran" (Era), situated around the 14th Century although it's very well conserved. If you are looking for a museum's worth item, this is it.
