Wow, that's a sweet one for sure. I think i would have to agree that it is one of the nicest i've seen as well. :)

Let's keep this discussion on the keris and keep it civil.

Common or not, bronze or not, it is a beautiful object with exquisite detail. Can't say i can answer any of your questions, but German seems a good guess based upon the dress. An attractive item. :)

I suspect not very old at all as in late 20th century at best. These naga style keris can almost be viewed as reproduction of rare much earlier dhapurs. The "kinatah" (gold) is more a painted on gold...

Semar, perhaps you could pose some questions when you post a keris. What would you like to know about this one? The more specific your questions, the likely you are to get a response. :shrug:

I'm not sure what you are trying to say here. Kai has suggested that this keris may have been intended to be a keris bahari. My understanding of those blades is that they are usually around 10 in....

Thanks for your response Jean. I don't think this has been reshaped, just not very well shaped in the first place (see my suggestion in my response to Gio). I think the file marks remain because the...

hmmm…well, i appreciate your response Gio, but personally believe that calling this a "keris-like-object" is perhaps taking it a bit far. No, this certainly isn't the work of an empu and does not...

Thanks Kai. I do indeed see the similarity in blade profiles, though with very different treatment to the backside of the blade (greneng et al).
I would have placed the sheath with a Palembang/South...

Sumatran Mystery?

This is a strange one. Well, it's a bit of a mystery to me anyway. I have never seen either this dhapur or hilt form before. I don't post the blades of my collection very often, but this one has me...

Well that is my point Alan. I am not convinced that the bevels on this keris are any wider than we would expect to see. I have in fact seen numerous Bugis keris with bevels that seem to be as wide as...

I'm a little confused on this point. What are the general rules on this feature for Bugis keris with this type of dhapur. To my eye the bevels on Ron's example doesn't look particularly wider than a...

I agree that while revision is possible, i see no reason to believe this blade has been reshaped at anytime.
I did not see this blade when i visited this collection. Ron was hiding this one from me....

Well you can teach new words to the auto-correct so that it doesn't change them. I have done this with a few keris related terms, but there are so many more. :eek: :)

Thanks for the additional info Alan. Of course when i was writing auto-correct changed "buntut" to "bunter", which i can only assume is baseball terminology…
