I love how the pamor makes the wings on the beast look feathery.
Also the eye seems to be looking at the viewer on this side of the sorsoran. Can we see the other side of the blade?

I wish there was a picture of the sarong.

All this bronze casting makes me ask; is this piece for 'show' or for 'go'?
It would seem to be a bit of a heavy ensemble with a bronze scabbard, not to mention the metal on metal wear on the edge...

I have a nice little Ju Ca that I use quite frequently, actually weekly.
It works quite well on my roast beef where we dine on Fridays. :)

It does look rather fresh Jean, still I'd take that blade in a heartbeat. :)
It looks nicely executed (no pun intended) .

Yarn for the handle; just wind it around, a knot is not really needed.
Do a forum search for keris oil and get lots of opinions and recipes.

Saint Michael's flamboyant sword aside; if you want to see the keris in classic European art check out The Blinding of Samson by Rembrandt.

I understand enthusiasm; but learn more about this weapon...
