I love the blade!! :)

In addition to its "lips", a handle and mendak in a javanese style but the rest with balinese style, your keris also asks the same question. :shrug:

Unusual balinese warangka.

Hello,
I would like your opinion on this keris.
The overall shape is Balinese but there is some details on the warangka that could make more Javanese.

What do you think?

Blade length : 33cm
