I think the interest that this kris generates is due to the fact that there was another kris on the same popular TV show. What I personally like about Pawn Stars and simialr shows on History and Discovery is that they show antique arms and armor as valuable items and help popularize our hobby. When some of the things we collect end up on TV, where they are available to a wide audience, I personally enjoy it and think it is good for our hobby, and I am sure others here are feeling in a similar way. In an age where the majority of my acquisitions come from online auctions, it is still nice to know that a local pawn shop may have an enthongraphic sword or two.
