Flyovers... :rolleyes: :D

The two iron balls help to keep it properly 'tuned' so to speak.
The red one is on the left or port side of the vessel; green is...

I think it's a married piece.

The pattern does appear to me to be etched; the blade is too thin where it joins the handle.
Workmanship on the blade is too crude or hurried in execution as Bob has...

Red face You Asked

Not meant to offend, but for me:

The wilah reminds me of a Pizza with too many toppings; there's no harmony expressed in the wilah; it's like keris science fiction. :(

Clues?

A couple of observations about the original hilt:

The example I own is a very good thrusting weapon.

These are quite interesting pieces. Someone must be very dedicated to this idea as iirc the cost of producing dies for such an item would be quite expensive.
