Maybe. To be honest pamor identification is not my strongest suit. Could be Bendo Sagodo though.
Given the type of setting used and the over all quality of the mendak itself i would tend to think...

It's not a question of dissatisfaction GP. I am just trying to understand the visual illustrations you have chosen to make your points. These Javanese keris do not have any connection whatsoever to...

GP, i honestly mean no offense by this. I am always happy to find people interested in keris, though it does not seem to be the focus of your collecting, at least based upon you previous posts. So...

This copy & paste from The Keris Shop should perhaps best be taken with at least a small grain of salt (and should also be in quotes with source cited since it is a direct copy of text on that site)....

Well, i hate to be a stick in the mud, but i do find this article just a bit too far off the keris path to think it should stay. I will wait for Rick to chime in as well, but since we don't even...

This is pretty hardcore illegal stuff Bill. I do hope you have taken steps to protect yourself as well as this dagger. You should be sure to report as much as possible about the person or people who...

BTW, while keris certainly exist in the region of Aceh, it is not a keris-centric (if i might coin a term) area of Indonesia. The rentcong is the preferred personal dagger for that region. The two...

Kubur, the two keris you show are fairly recent creations, one perhaps more artistic than the other (this one was actually discussed on our keris forum at one time). However, i am not aware that...

While i do not disagree with the general concept here Alan, i do need to point out that some of us have only so much money to put into our keris libraries. So for me personally, the idea of...

Well, it's not a bad question Mickey. I would say however the reality, in this situation, the only issue to be at all concerned about would indeed be the copyright issue. A keris you own is not the...

Nice pedang Julien. I really don't know much about these, but i would agree that Lombok is a likely origin and it is a very beautiful example with exquisite workmanship.

This seems like a well made current era blade, but the features are frankly not to my tastes. The rather bulbous "nose" of the kembang kacang and what Jean remarked as the "odd tail" of the gonjo...

I agree with Ian that these probably belong more in the garden than the kitchen.
They do look to me to be Asian, but i certainly could not place the exact origin.
And i don't mean to call out your...

To be honest, i cannot say i am particularly found of the hilt design you chose, but this is, of course, all a matter of personal taste. It all appears to be nicely done.

Very nice work Anthony, though i have generally seen this woven wire work (nice alliteration there ;) ) done only on hilts like the one Jean shows and not on pendok. Still, very well done though....

We have this illustration which i believe comes from Raffles of a gent wearing both a keris and wedung. So this would be very early 19th C as Raffles History of Java was first published in 1817.
