Very nice pamors on both blades. Both keris are brand new. My problem with these two blades is the rust. Maybe it is slight surface rust that can be whiped away with a cloth and oil. After treating a...

Both knives are khyber knives or Pesh kabz. If you search in Google for khyber knife and you select pictures you will find them.

The African thing has already explained.

Don't make it too hard for yourself. Use your common sense when you look at a piece. I think the most important things are: Do you like it? What is it and does it meet your expectations? And most...

That was my idea too Rick. The stamps on the tang puzzled me most. Reproducing the furniture castings was a job they could do pretty well over there. :shrug:

Some better pictures of te blade and the snake tail would certainly help.
My two cents? Pamor or wootz blade? Snake tail? A hirschfanger from the Tjikeroe area. That's my first guess.

In what direction are you thinking Alan? Or are you only rather sure my Jawa guess isn't a lucky one?

I wouldn't be surprised when this blade is javanese. When cleaned and treated with warangan it might give a very nice pamor.
Javanese spears weren't always fancy but also very plane. Just for warfare.

After seeing so many coteng keris in this thread and the knowledge that these are still made in your area gives me a good feeling. What i see is very good craftmanship on the dresses. The...

Not my field at all, but i believe this is a manding sword. I wouldn't call it a sword actually because it hasn't an edge. Looks more like an iron stick.

In my eyes for ritual purpose and probably...

I think the metal and wirework could be silver.

Very well done, Stu. It makes the flask complete.
Comparing it with the Tibetan powder flask i'm more convinced about my first guess. Ottoman/Balkan Area.

In the ottoman area they where fond of these kind of decorations as well.
The other suggestions make sense as well.
Nice find, that's for sure.

Nylon could be used for repair, could be fishing line. Butit could also be organic material like a dried sinew or something like that. Hard to see on the picture

Yep Java. Very nice trisula. Always mounted as a tombak. I've never seen a trisula mounted seriously as a dagger. Just as Detlef I cann't say anything about it's age.
