Golok

  • Golok

    I believe this to be Indonesian. It dates from late to post WWII.

    16-3/8" blade, 21-3/8" OAL. Blade is billet steel, tapering from 1/4" thick at the hilt, 2" wide. Chisel beveled on left side. Well patinated but no deep pits. Some recent surface corrosion (appears brown). The tip shows signs of resharpening.

    Hilt is 5", buffalo horn with an iron collar. The horn has some cracks and delaminations typical for age. Collar is brazed.

    Scabbard is two lames of dark wood. The tip cover is interlock-fastened tortoise shell held in place with nailed brass bands, with a small amount of dot repousse on the tip band. The shell is worn but with no significant cracks. The throat cover is interlock-fastened leather secured with a nailed brass band top, and a nailed brass band bottom, where part of the wrap becomes a belt or sash frog. The throat band is in rough shape, battered and with missing nails. The exposed wood between the wraps has a worn opening that exposes the blade on draw. There are some longitudinal cracks under the throat wrap.

    The blade draws easily with a little tightness toward the swell.

  • Japanese Artillery Short Sword

    From the estate collection of Professor Henry Karlson, IUPUI law professor and advisor to the Indiana Supreme Court.

    Just predating the Russo-Japanese War.

    The first line of text reads Tokyou Hou-hei Kousho (Tokyo Army/Navy Armory)

    The second reads Meiji 36 (1903).

    The third means "Manufactured in".

    This piece is in excellent shape, with very little patina on the unsharpened blade. The handle scales are original and intact, but slightly loose. Arsenal paint on the fittings is largely complete, with some scuffing. Scabbard throat is slightly loose vertically. Scabbard fits well. The tip is missing the retention staple, but is affixed with contact cement. Stitching is intact. Leather collar is complete and supple. Further photos available on request.

  • Pair of Turkish-style Jambiya

    A pair of Turkish style jambiya. Included is the accession card from their display in the Indiana State Museum.

    It is very unlikely that either story on the card is factual. Fanciful tails get assigned to lots of foreign objects, and nothing about these pieces suggests they were made for heavy use. However, the card is part of their history and comes with them.

    The brass and leather (appears to be goatskin) both show expected wear for age. The blades are in good condition, but I can't attest to their temper.

    Interesting collectibles, probably made as collectibles, over a century ago.
