The length of the scabbard looks longer than the blade. It looks like the tip of the blade broke and was reshaped. The size of the hilt (5 in.?),suggests that it was made for an adult.

interesting blade shape. Looks similar to the one in Cato's book (pg. 23), but not as graceful. Could it have been done as an afterthought?

I believe the kris was refitted with a new tang. Clamped and pinned to secure the new tang.
A very nice catch BTW. I like that dark jungayan pommel.
