Yes Jean, you're right Surakarta. My mistake in a hasty answer during bussy work this afternoon.

I agree with David. The only thing i would do is trying to get a warangan treatment. The missing luk doesn't bother me at all on this keris. It looks to me as a fine keris.

My first thought was a trench knife. Spanish civil war like Tim said is very good possible too. I think you have to look in those two directions.

Harry,

I understand that you like the center one. I suppose you should handle this one together with a real Balinese keris. Then you will understand the differences. Such a keris was one of the...

Sorry Jean,

A bit less crude opinion is much more friendlier.

The third keris is indeed the best one in my opinion too. The crack in the scabbard should be restored and the ukiran should be turned...

Indeed mid 20th century javanese golok, I think the previous owner reworked the blade for a personal purpose. The cloth at the base of the hilt looks like plaster. I guess for a better gripp or...
