Martin Kerner showed similar hilts identified as Bima in his reference book "Keris Griffe aus Museen und privatsammlungen".

Thank you Pak Ganja. I checked that 864 is a multiple of 2 and 3 (2x2x2x2x2x3x3x3) so feasible, but this is a lot of layers!

Thank you Alan. I feel amazed that this type of blade with such a complex pamor could be attributed to a tangguh linked to a 12th century period, but we know that it is irrelevant.
