It's mainly Timor and Molluks klewang I feel.
I seem to have read (but I don't know where) that on these islands the blades were imported from other islands and especially (but not only) Sulawesi.

Sulawesi Klewang??

Hello,

I'm not sure about the origin of this Klewang. :confused:
The handle and the blade make me say that it comes from Sulawesi, but the sheath isn't in the Toraja style (for the little that I...

Indeed, Sumatra seemed so obvious to me that I thought it had already been said.
I have Sumatran's pedang with a close shape , but without the hook tip and with a much more basic handle.

"Golok" Toraja ?

Hello,
I recently acquired this golok. I think Toraja origin because the work of the pamor and sheath are identical to those of the Penai.
I had never seen one before. Do you have information about...

For me it's possibly East Java, but I'm not sure because I've never seen this form of sheath and blade.
This keris is very original, I love it! ;)

The handle looks like some Siraui handles, and the blade a little bit too but without the bend.

I agree with you, for me it's unlikely that the scabbard is mid-18th century. Being reasonable I would say that it dates from the 19th century.

For the Mendak, I have several old but what are the...

Inside the sheath the wood is lighter, but already a little orange. As with the majority of sheaths, I think polishing and waxing (or oil?) make the color of the wood darker and more intense.

Can the style of the sheath or blade of this keris indicate a time that reinforces or invalidates this date of "1821"?

A strange (west?) Javanese Keris.

Hello,

This is my last acquisition. As often, I like objects that show a bit of originality.
I find this keris very strange because the wrangka iras sheath is Javanese (West Java?) But the handle is...

Thank you all for your information.

The blade is "short", 33cm. But the pamor seems to have shown that it was longer at the beginning and that it was shortened afterwards. :shrug:

Yes it's a Keris with all the characteristics of a (recent) production of Madura (The handle, the sheath, the realization of the blade and pamor).
For the pamor it may be Mayang?

So it's probably a Keris from Sumatra (maybe East Sumatra).

After reflection, the blade does not have the hexagonal section typical of keris Bugis but rather a rhombic section that would be more reminiscent of penisular keris.
