Silver or brass? I hesitate.
The advantage of brass is that its color will match that of the pendok.

Yes David, I also feel that the handle comes from a pedang.
The blade also seems to be a re-use, maybe an old reworked spear point?
The sheath seems to have been specially made for this assembly.

Bugi Keris whis strange bone hilt.

Hello,

I would like to have your opinion on this bugis keris that I think comes from Sulawesi.
The scabbard and blade are classic but the bone handle is more unusual.
What do you think? :confused:

It's mainly Timor and Molluks klewang I feel.
