Curious question Rich. As you point out, stylistically there are very few similarities other then they are both edged tools.

I agree Anthony. The pamor looks beautiful within the winged singo. It would be a shame to cover it up, even with gold.

Well, i usually find it is hard to say much about these at all. Dating them is generally difficult at best as keris sajen have been made over a rather large period of time without much in the way of...

Marius, i don't feel that i can make any comments on the quality of you tajong hilt or even say for sure that it is a Javanese copy based solely upon the photos that you have presented. Other here...

I guess i must be an old guard traditionalist Jean because i am not being particularly tolerant of this ensemble myself, as you have probably noticed. I actually find this homogenizing trend i...

Alan, i have no doubt that you have keris with a Bugis style wrongko and a tajong hilt. I have also occasionally seen such a combination, though the vast majority of tajong keris i have seen use the...

I certainly have no argument with anything that Alan has said here, but feel it is important to emphasize this last sentence since, after all, it is THIS keris that Marius has brought to us and asked...

Alan, does this mean that you are not willing to accept a keris made outside of South Sulawesi as Bugis, only that it might be "Bugis influenced"? As we know, the Bugis people got around and had...

Tim, when we started this keris forum some years ago it was decided that keris would be the sole subject of this particular corner of EAAF. I would suggest that if you wish to discuss the Philippines...

Patje, it looks like an authentic old form. But it is really difficult to date these because the form doesn't change much over time. I would think this fellow has some age to him though and he also...

You may be right Sajen. I didn't say all or even most. Of course they are folded, but does that always include the addition of pamor material?

I had assumed this was indeed a more contemporary blade Jean, and can't really use that as a criticism against this keris. I don't think Marius presented it as an antique. I just find it beautiful...

I'll jump on the band wagon here Marius.
