Nice and good Bugis keris. I don't think that the sheat and hilt are recent but well restored. The sampir wood have some old cracks you can see often by kemuning wood.

some old cracks you can see often by kemuning wood.

Considering the cracks I also think thatthis scabbard is not newly made, but just cleaned and well polished.
Same as with the blade, cleaned and stained in javanese style.
Not the way I like it with bugis blades, by the way.

Still, nice piece, amazing what comes out of this swiss cupboard ;) :)

Agree, possibly, most likely refinished .
A Sepokal* form of blade I believe .

Nice .
