Yes, both are Bugis style because of the hexagonal cross section of the blade, but origin of both most probably is Southern coast of Sumatra. The darker hilt would be associated with Riau province,...

David,

I would say, staining blades dark most probably didn't had the importance like on Java and Bali, but there are blades which retain old staining. I have posted somewhere a kris from Munich,...

Regarding the (very nice) twistcore kris I suppose that such blades could be early Maguindanao ones. Of course the "elephants trunk" looks Suluish, the rest is in many features close to my example
