Kujang was one of the typical weapon of the West Java region, precisely in Pasundan (Sundanese tatar). form of a weapon is quite unique in terms of its design, no one equals this weapon in any area, this weapon in West Java. The absence of the right words to mention the name of this weapon into the International language, so the sense is synonymous with Cleaver "Chorizo" (= sickles/Scythe), certainly is very much distorted because they look different from any facet of arit with or sickle. Not the same also with "scimitar" which shape is convex. And in Indonesia itself and sickle or Scythe is actually called "chelurit" (celurit). Perhaps in response to language barriers, the duties and obligations of Sundanese cultural observer, and local print media in more intensive tatarsunda to publish this weapon into a world of Cleaver International.  The origin of the term comes from the word Cleaver ' Kudihyang ' with the root word ' Kudi, India ' and ' Lord '. ' Kudi, India ' is taken from an ancient Sundanese have a sense of weapons that have supernatural powers as a talisman, the milky way, as a repellent, for example to drive off the enemy or avoid danger/disease. This weapon also kept possession, which is used to protect the home from danger by putting it in a crate or a certain place inside the House or put it on the bed (Hazeu, 1904: 405-406) whereas ' Hyang ' comparable with notions of Gods in some mythology, but for the people of Sunda Hyang has the meaning and position above the gods, this is reflected in the doctrine of "Dasa Prebakti" which is reflected in the script the Sanghyang Torment Kanda Ng Karesian mentioned "God's consecrated Hyang". In General, understand the inheritance of Kujang as having certain powers that come from the gods (= Lord), and as a weapon, from ancient to the present Kujang occupy one very special position among the people of West Java (Sunda). As an emblem or symbol with the philosophical values niali contained therein, Kujang is used as one of the few aesthetic symbol of organization and governance.
