Hello Carlos, Both of these are very nice examples and though I do not know much about kris, this one looks to have a good bit of age to it, at least to me. I am sure the experts on these will be...

Jose, I was hoping that you would say Philippines even though the blade style is close to more that a few of the Mexican (scorpion tip) bowies that I have seen. As for the metal sheath, I am hoping...

WOW, it has indeed cleaned up very nicely. Makes me wonder now if I made the right choice in making my offer on the one I did and not bid on this instead. Add me to the list of potential new owners...

Hello Detlef, I'm not quite sure if the hilt is made from horn, black palm or possibly ironwood. I know that the blade not having a chisel ground blade is not completely unheard of as I have a...

Hello Detlef, If I were pressed to put a name to it I would call it an Itak and would put the age to late 1800's to very early 1900's. A great piece and I believe it will clean up very nicely. I too...

Hello everyone and thank you all for your gracious comments on this piece. Detlef, I mostly agree with your dating but think that this would date more to the 1930's than the 40's. Kai, I totally...
