Hello Alan,
This thread failed to raise much interest and the forum is very quiet these days may be due to the Holiday season.

Hi Max,
Excellent refurbishing indeed, by the way the hilt of this kris is from Madura.
I own one ivory hilt probably made in Indonesia and (vaguely) copying the tajong design but with a less curved...

Well, I am not at all a specialist of these krisses but the scabbard looks new or recent to me and the hilt seems to have some age but is not finely carved?

Thanks Max. From my Indonesian kris collector's perspective, the beauty of these krisses is the hilt and the scabbard to a lesser degree but the blades are not very impressive . :)

I agree with Alan and would see another incentive to free the hilt as the pendokok is a Bugis cup so not suitable IMO? (other opinions are welcome). Nice kris indeed and probably from Sumatra Riau,...

Hello Semar,
From the pics and although they are small it seems to me that the sogokan was carved more recently than the blade itself (black color and uneven shape). What do you think?

Thank you for your views on the subject and other opinions will be welcome. There seems to be some differences in the kris culture between Indonesia and Malaysia? :)
