If i am not mistaken, Alan would often list keris for shipping as "Dhuwung-Indonesian handicraft made of metal and wood". :)

I agree with Alan that the top one is most probably Nawa Sari. I assume Alan wants to see the grain sheaf in the hand behind the back, but everything else about this hilt fits the commonly...

There most likely is, but as far as i know a bold and contrasty display is not traditional to these weapons as it would be for, say, a Javanese keris. ;)

Well this one is a keris! :D
And yes, unusual dress for sure, at least the hilt.
My general feeling is that this keris and hilt got a bit of a re-design somewhere along the way. I don't think this...

Another interesting item. The hilt has a simplistic beauty. But again, as Alan has pointed out, not a keris. :(

Well, Alan is, of course right. This is not a keris. Nor do i believe this interesting and beautiful dagger was adapted from a keris. So i am tempt to send it over to Ethno as we only discuss keris...

I'm afraid i must agree with Kai on this. This is all modern and just for display, nothing else. :shrug:

Josť, i'm pretty sure my example is all original and commemorates victory at the end of the second world war. So that's 75 years ago if that's what you mean by "more recent carvings". :shrug:

You just gotta love that sledgehammer anvil though. The ingenuity of making use of what you have available and still being able to produce a good quality product. :)

Interesting blade. But i am curious what you call it a kampilan and what aspects of this piece distinguish it as a datu weapon?

This isn't mine, but belongs to a friend. It was labeled as a "French fur trade battleaxe", but that seems highly doubtful. It is...
