Repurposed blade?
I seem to remember wavy bladed daggers from small ads in the back pages of Argosy and other similar magazines of the fifties. I think the hilts were spiral with a ball and claw...

Maybe this should be in the Ethno Miscellanea forum.

A nice, simple kanjar; I like the heavy crude silver work.
Maybe a bit of pure lanolin to make the horn less dried out looking. :shrug:

That won't be easy to correct Anthony. If it was bent one way or another you might be able to straighten that out; but with it flattened like it is that will be a real challenge.

I think it begins at the Ganja, Alan.
To my way of thinking such things end at the point.

Does a Phallus/Lingam begin at the tip?
Or does it begin at the base?

Sure, I have one of these with carved stone handle.

People made that from scratch; probably a cottage industry; most likely with hand tools which in itself is impressive. :)

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?

It would be nice to see this object photographed perhaps in open shade sunlight and a bit sharper, perhaps a view from the back also.

Great craftsmanship yet I'm a bit surprised at the lack of contrast in the pamor.
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.
