Do we know the white folks doing the striking? Known writers on the subject? Or is this simply keris making tourism? :shrug:

Well, i don't see too many similarities blade-wise between the two. I think you are correct that the keris Marius linked to is a more difficult pamor to forge. Your Lintang Kemukus is executed with...

In practice post-1945 is really the same as saying post 1970s. There are not a lot of keris being made in the period between 1945-early 1970s. I think this keris was made after the 1970s, but really...

Thank you for making the distinction for us Alan. I thought i had seen keris named Kebo/Mahesa Teki in the past that had luks. I should have been paying more attention to the the other ricikan.

Thanks you Jean. I was not aware that Kebo Teki is only a Central Jawa dhapur. I am afraid that with today's standard of going wild and willy with dhapur names i was also unaware that Kebo Teki was...

I a little confused Jean. I never placed the blade as central Jawa in my description. I only placed the hilt, which i did say was East Jawa, so what is you exception to my assessment?

Here's some information for you OGB. Others may follow with more.
The hilt, which looks more like bone than ivory to my eye, is a form from East Jawa known as Janggalan.

To be clear Marius, the bidders final cost were more likely just a bit over $30,000 USD, not euros. I generally don't like spending too much time talking about money on this forum. I think people...
