Late 19th to Early 20th century, wood handled adz with hand forged blade. This item was made by the matrilineal Minangkabau people and sourced in the small town of Bukittingi in the highlands of Sumatra in 1989. The handle is well polished through years of use with quite stunning bands of carved decoration on the handle. Condition good the only damage is some “checking” in the wood near the base of the handle. Handle L: 43 cm/17in and blade L: 16.4/6.5cm.
