Haha, might need more stamps in my passport to get away with that one.

I should add that the reason "duhung" is archaic in everyday Sundanese usage is likely because the keris has little to no...

Keris luk 9 - inviting comments

I won this in an auction very recently. It wasn't my first pick but through my other preferences which I did not win, I learned that I had painfully expensive taste. I suppose this is a good sign for...

Keris for sharing

Hi all,

Here's one of my keris. I picked it up in a really sorry crusty state (http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showthread.php?t=24017) and it cleaned up nicely. I tried to sulphur stain it but I...

Keris suitability according to Balinese belief/numerology

I've recently started reading Eiseman's 'Sekala and Niskala' (1989), which has a short chapter dedicated to the Balinese keris.

Interesting.

Though the most I can find about besi kersani is that it's probably a copper alloy of some sort but has some sort of relevance to some Islamic mystic beliefs.
