Here's my example.

BTW, only barung or also other Moro pieces with horn ferrule?

Hello Ron,

Your's looks really interesting and seems to be a real Moro version rather than one of those styles which tend to get associated with Borneo and thereabouts.

Hello Thomas,

Very unusual scabbard with detailed carving work - a really good grab. Please try to avoid it getting wet!

Hello Thomas,

Good work on the blade!



As you can see from the carved motifs, a ferrule has always been with this piece.

Maybe a suasa ferrule got replaced later by a copper ferrule. Have it...

Hello Ariel,


These peudeueng are not tip-heavy even when combined with typical Sumatran hilts. The metal basket hilts actually make these blades even more alive...

While these are generally...

Hello Thomas,

This obviously is a keris blade that was bent on purpose during forging. From the pics, it does seem to have some age including the fittings.

It may be correctly placed in this forum...

Looks like "boutiques fournissent" to me - IMHO dealers. I hope any native speaker of French will come in to confirm!

Hello Sevérin,

Congrats! I'm sure this blade deserves a polish and carful staining. Length doesn't seem unusual for a full-size example.

Hello Ian,

IMVHO this clearly is a Sulu blade. (This also vibes much better with the size, double clamps, and possibly small pommel.)

I’m with Detlef - not Bali. I did consider the Melayu realm (they seem to have accepted influences from all Moro styles) and Maguindanao though.
