That looks like the wavy fraternal twin to Semar's blade Jean. :)

Yeah, that seems unrealistic to me as well. That is nearly 1/2 pound of meteorite. You do realize, of course, that the entire blade is not made of pure meteoric ore when meteorite was used on these...

Wayne, these blades that you have posted on this post are NOT Moro blades. They are modern creations out of Jawa that mimic the Moro (i am not sure i would even call them Indonesian sundangs. They...

From what i can see this is most probably an old kris that was refurbished outside of the culture. As Rick has pointed out, the stirrup straps should run under the ferrule and i don't think i have...

As Alan points out Ariel, this thread is about old Javanese mendaks, not swaasa pendokoks. In the keris world these are apples and oranges. There is no one price range for anything that fits between...

I happened to see that (which is weird because i don't usually watch the show). That was most certainly a modern made Moro style keris. Probably made by some company like Cold Steel. I'm not certain...

I'm not sure a scientific explanation is really necessary. It's just a matter of balance and creating a triangulation of surface contact with the floor/table, blade and sheath. As Rick points out,...

Max, i did not pass you post where you state where you sent you keris for restoration. We need to avoid commercial references on the forum.
