I agree that this kris is very nicely crafted, but would put it more at the very end of the 20th century. It could even be early 21st century.
My take on this is that it is more likely a high end...

Well, they do have similar decorative collars and a black horn toe on the gandar, yes, but these two sheaths are hardly identical. In fact, similarities aside, they are two completely different...

Hi Charles. This is a lovely Balinese keris.
On the sarung, does it appear that it was made for this blade specifically. Certainly it was made for a blade with gonjo wilut so it seems possible. I...

I agree with Jean on a number of fronts, though I'm not sure if i would call it "nicely dressed". If the hilt is actually ivory and the metal piece silver, then there is some value in the dress, but...

Indeed. As we have discussed many times before it is always a bit dubious to try to attach actual characters to many Balinese figural hilts unless there are solid and clear indicators for such...

No worries Charles.It was fairly recently actually. You should scan our forum more often. LOL! ;)
I could simply merge the two threads.
In the meantime i'd still love to know how long the blade is.

I am pretty sure that Anthony didn't make this dress. He did, however, commission it.
Thanks for the close-ups Anthony. The silver work is beautiful. I'm afraid i see Bali work and motifs here. I'm...

Peter, i'd like to know the blade length. I suspect this keris might well be anak alang, not panjang. :shrug:

Not sure why members haven't commented yet, but i think this is a beautiful new art keris. Very nice level of craft apparent here.

It's a very interesting blade. Cleaned up and shot from more angles i still din't think it's Javanese, but perhaps Alan knows better. :shrug:

So Xasterix, but i see two rather different blade profiles here. The differences are subtle, but clear to me. :shrug:

To bring this back to the original heading description, i don't think i would describe this blade as having a "spear point".

I don't think i'd call this style janggelan. Jean categorizes them separately in his recent hilt book, though only identifies them as "Floral Style" from Madura.

Yes, it does seem that an asang asang was not part of the latest hilting of this kris, but i suspect that there probably was one originally. The blade was certainly made to accommodate one.
