Badik/Dagger in 10 Finely Carved Deer Horn Hilt & Sheath/Scabbard with 6 Blade
B adik/Dagger with Finely Carved Deer Horn Hilt & Sheath. The badik consists of three parts, the hilt/handle, blade, and sheath/scabbard. From its native Sulawesi, the badik soon spread to neighboring islands like Java, Borneo, Sumatra and as far as the Malay Peninsula, creating a wide variety of badik styles according to each region and ethnic group. As with other blades in the Malay Archipelago, traditionally-made badik are believed to be imbued with a supernatural force during the time of their forging. This badik/dagger from Sumatra measures approximately 10 in its sheath. The sheath/scabbard and hilt are finely carved from deer horn. The 6-1/8'' blade is sharp and in great condition but could use some cleaning and polishing. The hilt is 3 long and fits comfortably in a small hand. This item is not ivory and it is not carved from the bone of any endangered species.
