This name is used by some sellers from Yogya (the missed Suryono for instance) but is not mentioned in the book "Keris Jawa".
It seems quite similar to the type of ganja "sebit ron tal" (see page...

No Sajen, I agree with you, and this is why some (mostly Western) people call them vegetation god... Nice collection by the way!

Thank you for the clarification Alan (you already mentioned it to me earlier), as I said nobody is perfect, but what matters is that the identification of the hilt in question was not correct.

Hello Alan,
I am glad that your share my aesthetical point of view and I agree with you that some ugly-looking people are or were quite irreproachable (De Gaulle for instance). :)

I attach the pic of a similar blade with a thick ganja, personally I think that these blades lack elegance but this is just my personal taste...

Dear Willem,
I would estimate the age of the blade to the second half of 19th century, and the fittings (hilt, selut and scabbard) to mid-20th century, but the ivory buntut may be older.

The blade looks old but the singa may have been welded later (no trace of the steel core on the front side of the singa for instance).

Thank you Antony. The quality of the embossed silver scabbard is much better than the pieces which I saw in Ujung Pandang some 25 years ago, and this is why I asked you about its origin.
