Sorry for changing the topic (I suppose Gustav and David are done with their very enriching discourse) ..
This keris in good condition gives me the impression that either the non-tropical climate is better for kerises or the Japanese way of maintenance (choji oil and uchiko) is better from preservation point of view. I also bet that the keris hasn't been stained in centuries.
However, seeing that the keris still has some traces of warangan, I doubt if it has seen much uchiko rubbing powder on it.
Any opinion from the maintenance perspective?
