Almost no other area in the world has produced such a varied arsenal of traditional weapons as the Indonesian archipelago. Laden with symbolism and blessed with divine power, the keris especially has achieved great fame. However, this vast region has brought forth numerous other functional and ritual weapons. Through the centuries an almost endless quantity of weapons and other implements of war have been produced by the people and groups living all over the archipelago.

This is the first time that these weapons have been extensively listed in a handy reference work. Arranged alphabetically by name, with much information about shapes of blades and provenance, this book forms the ultimate vademecum for each and every devotee, collector, dealer or museum curator.
