Agree with David,

the blade is very recent. The value by your keris is the dress. Read also what Alan G. Maisey has written in post #10. :)

Hello Ian,

my opinion wasn't based alone by the pommel shape but by the complete sword/chopper. When it was for selling I was interested as well and have discussed it with a friend.

Hi Dave,
