I also noticed that the gulu meled of the ganja (the part behind the sirak cecak) looks to be wider than the pejetan.

What is the reason for the sloppy & blurred patras, religious reason or just poor craftsmanship?

Very interesting, thanks! The "sweet" smell of rotten eggs and the black colour of the blade are indicating the production of hydrogen sulphide and iron sulphide on the blade respectively.

Hello Sajen,
Of course the blades are very different but the scabbard and hilt are similar. I can post a pic if required but the original one is very small.

Hello Anthony,
The bent figure looks reminiscent of the old Makassar/ Goa figural hilts depicting an Hindu deity often interpreted as Arjuna. Your hilt is probably a copy of these hilts.

Hello Alan,
It is not my opinion but Haryoguritno's one who distinguishes between the 2 types of mendak, see pages 279 to 281 of the book "Keris Jawa" (and also in the EK pages 289 & 290).

Hello David,
This mendak which you showed us is in bejen style from Yogya (see Keris Jawa book page 281) so not really suitable for this kris... ;)
