I wouldn't take it personally. I'm not sure what could be said in reply. The keris in question is clearly not from Madura. I am not sure what crest your carving represents. It is not a very good...

This is such an odd one Ron. The blade seems old and genuine, though i have never seen on quite like it. But it would qualify as a keris sepang i suppose. The hilt is more of a mystery. I'm not sure...

Interestingly enough, David Reinke, the hunter in question, is a major supporter of the Republican politics, so your reference to Obama wasn't really relevant at all. Let's keep politics off this...

You are not incorrect given the question, however i believe Ron is making a division between Moro kris and Malay/Indonesian keris when he asks about the various types of Indo keris. If i am correct...
