I can't imagine the keris being so significant to Fidel that he would have reenacted it. I doubt its veracity still , but at least the keris is the same.

in the case of pamor tangkis, is the execution a matter of making two pattern-welded laminations, and then welding the two laminations together?

That's stunning, Paul.

I learned a lot in this thread. Had I not known any better I would have thought I was looking at some kind of keris dhapur sepang.

The dhapur Mangkurat Mangkunagara is indeed found in the dhapur keris Keraton Surakarta manuscript.

It's since been cleaned down to a bare white blade because I wasn't happy with it. But it was a promising result.

When I try it again I'll leave it for longer.
