Very nice Tebu work, but IMHO I'm inclined to think a little later then Sajen suggested.

Thanks for the input, Bob, but I believe a jimpul has a greater curve, and technically, doesn't have a stabbing "point/tip", only a cutting/hacking edge.

Thanks, Ian! Always nice to get a response from you! Yes, this one is very sharp. Like you I am guessing these are far more lethal in the right hands with the right training. I am even guessing that...

Lovely kriss!

The holes along the spine of the pommel and they nearly straight line of dark patina there make we wonder if there was a silver or suassa band across the top.

Battara, your thoughts?

I do so like these lovely knives. This is a great example, and I agree with the hilt being bone. The patina is lovely.

Another great fine Detlef!

Looks like it's going to be a stunner!!! Are you planning to clean it up a bit? The gray color of the blade suggests perhaps wootz!

Detlef, congrats on a lovely and unique find!
