Harry,

I understand that you like the center one. I suppose you should handle this one together with a real Balinese keris. Then you will understand the differences. Such a keris was one of the...

Sorry Jean,

A bit less crude opinion is much more friendlier.

The third keris is indeed the best one in my opinion too. The crack in the scabbard should be restored and the ukiran should be turned...

Not a single reaction?

This is not my field, but it is a great looking sword. My guess is a rehilted reworked british sabre.

Indeed mid 20th century javanese golok, I think the previous owner reworked the blade for a personal purpose. The cloth at the base of the hilt looks like plaster. I guess for a better gripp or...

For the hair tufts cavity i believe i see at the end of the protrusion of the hilt something as a peg used to secure the hair tufts in the cavity. At the top of the hilt I'm pretty sure,...

Although it looks very nice it is probably made for export. Another possibility is that this one is for dance performances but the quality of the blade is very poor.

My comment would be balinese ukiran and uwer on a javanese keris and scabbard.I would describe the dapur of the blade as brodjol.
