How does it affect wearing the sword when you hold it to your hip?

Kai,
Regarding the parapat, I think all the hair, side scabbard, and shoulder baldric are later to the sword, though certainly not new or recent. The hair is very coarse. I would not be surprised if...

Last one: A Keris Madura

Looks to be a small, well worn, keris Madura. The wooden hilt is quite simple by Madurese standards. The wrangka is more impressive.

Insights appreciated.

Tajong or Coteng?

Typically I would look at the hilt profile here as a keris coteng. The hilt is paired with selut of horn. The blade profile and the scabbard type are typically for a keris tajong I believe. You can...

Another Balinese Keris for Analysis

This is a yet another one traded at the swap meet I mentioned. I believe this to be a later hilt(Kocet-kocetan) with an older blade. The blade has some micro pitting that has been well hidden by its...

The hilt is, indeed, sitting centered on the selut. So, you guys’ observations of it not being properly set seem to be correct. If I wanted to get a new hilt for the good blade, what kind of hilt...

Thanks Jean. Yes a similar( and lovely) hilt, but the size is much smaller than on that Balinese keris. It's easy to tell by the way it sits on the mendek.
