Golok Rembau

This was a piece commissioned by a fellow foumite. It is a traditional Malaysian style chopper with an American spin. The blade is 13.5 inches long of 450 layer pool and eye damascus. The fixtures are cable in a can damascus. The handle is Chakte viga. The OAL is 19". It is now off to Kenny Rowe for a nice scabbard. Hope you enjoy.

Thanks JA. That wood is difficult to find in the figured form. I found it a few years ago and really like it. It will continue to deepen in color until it reaches a red/orange. Really a pretty wood.
