Keris for comment

This was one of the first keris I ever purchased and also one of my favourite. What is unusual about it is the grove running down the blade. I have never known what was the name of the pamor. Years ago someone told me a grove running down the length meant it was hungry for blood lol
What do you guys think, any info appreciated.

The groves running down the blade is known as sogokan which is a often seen feature, however ours is indeed unusually long. I am not sure how that might affect the naming of this dhapur, but perhaps someone else has an idea. The pamor seems an unintentional one to me. Interesting keris. :)

This dapur with 7 luk and a very long twin sogokan is not a Centre Javanese standard. :)

i have one example of keris (new/kemardikan) with fairly long groove/sogokan. In fact it has 2 sogokans which i have not seen anywhere else. I guess this keris is just a fanciful mongrel kind of dhapur... may be charita/malela but I like it anyway.
