Fine looking keris

Not my area at all, but I thought the keris enthusiasts would like to see this example that sold in England a short while ago.

I handled the item and was suitably impressed, great condition also.

This type of spear is used by several different tribal groups in South Sudan, Uganda and Kenya. Not Masai however. Its difficult to identify exactly which tribe without a provenance.

With that uniform newish corrosion patina, and the general look of the piece, I have a suspicion this item has been manufactured quite recently. Possibly "made for sale" ?
