Alan,
The scabbard (iras) shown on my second picture is undoubtfully old and looks original but the gambar is undersized indeed and the gandar was probably covered by a pendok, which gives it its odd...

Alan, SÚverin,
Thank you for your messages.
From my observations and references the scabbard from SÚverin is typical of the gayaman style from East Java/ Madura (see another typical specimen shown...

Pics of my similar blade in Segaluh style, also similar to Patje's blade in another recent thread. The nice ivory hilt is in alternative style from West Java/ North Coast/ East Java.

I fully agree with Alan's comments but just add that the scabbard is from East Java IMO so is not perfectly matching with the blade & hilt. I will soon post a similar blade which I just purchased for...

Just for reference and comparison, I attach the pics of the sorsoran of 3 old & big blades similar to David's blade (dapur Tilam Upih) with original gonjos I think.

I wonder whether this gonjo wulung is original, look at the mating with the blade and the neat & oversized hole around the pesi with a rustic wedge?

These 2 photos correctly show both sides of the blade, thanks. What about the Singa figure, is it welded onto the sorsoran or carved from the blade?
For determining it, you can check if there is...

Gustav seems to be right (inverted picture?) as the raised front leg appears on the front on both pics.
I wonder whether the Singa was welded as there seems to be no slorok on the front side.

Thank you Alan. To me and probably many other kris collectors, the modern kris is a generally assymetrical dagger (with exceptions like dapur sepang), generally with a pamor pattern (with exceptions...

Thank you Alan. In this article you consider the krisses shown at the Candi Sukuh as "modern keris" (I personally question it) so it contradicts a bit your post # 20 in which you say that "there are...

This question puzzles me since I started developing my interest for the Kris. Does it mean that the well-accepted assertion that the modern kris developped during the Majapahit period is wrong in the...

Very interesting indeed, the kris is still in "leaf" style (short & broad), not a modern kris. From early Majapahit period?

You are correct Alan, my blade was classified as in Segaluh style, a very old West Javanese kingdom ending around 12th/13th century AD but of course it does not mean that these blades are that old :)...

Hello Pat,
What do you mean by urikan, is it ukiran (hilt)? IMO this blade is not Bugis for the following reasons (among others):

I agree with Alan's comments, and the hilt & scabbard are probably from Sumatra indeed but not the blade.

The blade with 9 shallow waves looks old but not Bugis IMO, but maybe from West Java?

The scabbard & hilt are in Solo style indeed, but the blade with ganja wulung rather looks in Tuban or North Coast style, it seems to have age but other opinions are welcome.

It is interesting to notice how we have become more tolerant or even appreciative with this type of modern & mixed kris over the years. I think that 10 years ago most of us would have designated this...
