Marcus, it wouldn't matter if you had only sold just one book, it is still a commercial site as its main purpose is to sell more books. It doesn't matter that none of these photos are in the book....

Firstly Charles, no one is punishing you. The Keris forum has been limited to the keris from the get-go. We don't discuss tombak there or pedangs either. All that gets talked about on Ethno. Always...

Sorry Charles, but we made the decision early on that the keris forum was solely for discussion of keris. :shrug: :)

Well you may never find "evidence" of this connection José. The Moro kris is obviously the child of the Javanese keris. The Javanese held this connection to the Cosmic Mountain well into the Islamic...

Just to follow through on this volcano theory, the one i would think it most likely to represent would be Mt. Apo. Not only is it in the Moro region, but like Mt. Semeru in Jawa, Mt. Apo is also the...

Well, the list of active volcanos in the Philippines is long. The relationship of the keris to Mt. Meru in Jawa clearly shows the connection between sacred mountains and the keris/kris form. In Alan...

Yes, the hilt is deeply and skillfully carved and has some motifs which, at least to my experience, aren't that common in this form. I would love to see some nice, sharp close-ups of it. I agree with...

I completely agree with Detlef on this which is why i stated that "from your pictures" i was uncertain. Photographs are always a difficult way to assess any keris, but proper orientation of the blade...

Of course, if this is indeed a Madura blade then you might want to change the sheath and keep the hilt in place, though this is a more difficult and expensive proposition. But the hilt cup needs to...

Welcome to the keris forum Sid!
I'm not sure i see need for "restoration" here, but this certainly seems to be a bit of a mix bag.
