Pajajaran Period, Abad 12-14
This is a traditional Javanese Kujang Wadon. It was used not only as a weapon but as a ceremonial piece and is quite often passed from generation to generation as a family heirloom (pusaka). This weapon type came into being after the war between the Majapahit and Pajajaran kingdoms. The Pajajaran kingdom lost the war and a lot of it's soldiers were taken prisoner.
