Not to mention, it seems to have a separate metuk which is the iron collar at the base of the blade which I take to be (at the very least) an indication of the smith's skill.

Another feature that might pin this stiletto down even further Mark is that this example has no apparent taper to the blade and thus is ideally suited to the touchhole of a cannon.

Maybe we might consider this kris as a 'transitional' style.
Do I see activity in the core of this sword?

Thank you Chris.

It must not have seen very much use in the past.
