Is the wooden ball integral with the hilt or not?
Martin Kerner showed similar hilts identified as Bima in his reference book "Keris Griffe aus Museen und privatsammlungen".

Thank you Pak Ganja. I checked that 864 is a multiple of 2 and 3 (2x2x2x2x2x3x3x3) so feasible, but this is a lot of layers!

Thank you Alan. I feel amazed that this type of blade with such a complex pamor could be attributed to a tangguh linked to a 12th century period, but we know that it is irrelevant.

Not Balinese IMO but rather S... The shape with the protruding ganja and 7 or 9 very shallow waves is typical. :)
