KUJANG is a unique weapon of the West Java. Kujang began to be made around the 8th century or the ninth, made ​​of iron, steel and prestige material, length approximately 20 to 25 cm and weighs about 300 grams.

KUJANG was the instrument that reflects the critical acumen and power in life also symbolizes strength and courage to protect the rights and truth. Is characteristic, both as weapons, agricultural tools, symbols, ornaments, or souvenirs.

According Sanghyang Siksakanda ng Karesian Pupuh XVII, Kujang is the weapon of the peasants and has its roots in agriculture Sundanese culture.

Kujang  known as the traditional weapon of West Java (Sunda), which has a sacred value and to have magical powers. Some researchers  states that the term "KUJANG" comes from the word "kudihyang" (kudi and Hyang. Kujang (also) comes from the word Ujang, which means human or Manusa. Humans are powerful as King Siliwangi.
Kudi retrieved from Sundanese language means the Ancient weapon that has the magical power of magic, as a talisman, as repellent reinforcements, such as to repel the enemy or avoid danger / disease. This weapon is also kept as heirlooms, which are used to protect the home from danger by putting them in a crate or a specific place in the house or by putting them on the bed (Hazeu, 1904: 405-406). Meanwhile, Hyang can be equated with a sense gods in some mythologies, but for society to have meaning, and Hyang Sundanese notch above the Gods, this is reflected in the doctrine of "Dasa Prebakti" which is reflected in the manuscript Sanghyang Siksa Kanda Ng Karesian  mentioned "Dewa Bakti Hyang ".
In general, Kujang have a sense as the heritage that has a certain strength that comes from the gods (= Hyang), and as a weapon, from ancient to the present Kujang occupies a very special position among the people of West Java (Sunda). As an emblem or symbol with niali-philosophical values ​​contained in it, Kujang used as one of the aesthetic in a few symbols as well as government organizations. In addition, Kujang was also used as a name of organization, unity, and of course also used by the Province of West Java.
In the past Kujang can not be separated from public life because of its function as a Sundanese agricultural equipment. This statement is contained in the ancient Script Sanghyang Siksa Kanda Ng Karesian  (1518 AD) and the oral tradition that developed in several regions including in the area of ​​Rancah, Ciamis. Evidence that reinforces the claim that Cleaver as farm equipment we can still see today on the Baduy, Banten and pancer Pangawinan in Sukabumi.
With the development progress, technological, cultural, social and economic situation of Sunda, Kujang also experienced growth and a shift in form, function and meaning. From an agricultural equipment, Cleaver developed into an object that has its own character and tend to be a valuable weapon symbolic and sacred. Cleaver is a new form as we know it is currently estimated birth of the 9th century until the 12th century.

In Bogor Pantun as told by Anis Djatisunda (996-2000), Cleaver has a variety of functions and forms. By function, Cleaver divided among the other four: Kujang Heritage (symbol of majesty and safety protection), Kujang Pakarang (to fight), Kujang Pangarak (as a means of ceremonies) and Kujang Pamangkas (as a farming tool). While based on existing blade shape called Kujang Jago (like the shape of a rooster), Kujang Ciung (birdlike Ciung), Kujang egret (bird resembling tailless / bango), Kujang Rhinoceros (like a rhinoceros), Kujang dragon (mythological animal resembling a dragon) and Kujang Bangkong (like frogs). In addition there is also the typology cleaver-shaped blade with a leather puppet heroine as a symbol of fertility.
