That twist core Kris blade is beautiful. An unusual blade profile with a twist core makes it a rare variant, in my opinion. It would be hard to find a proper hilt for it.

I agree that the vegetative engraving to the blade doesn't look Moro.

The leather sheath looks Occidental.

Is that a Chinese chop mark at the base of the engraving?
I like this blade, hard to tell...

Fantasy, I believe not. Ceremonial, probable. Art form, definitely.

I have a Panabas with a similar blade profile but not as elaborate as drac2k's.

I like the blade profile of the middle one. I think that this profile is not as common as the other two shown. I have one similar not as nice and the sundi is bent.
