To be honest, I don't put much effort in learning names, but during the last 20 years I have handled a substantial number of old and new keris.
The keris you bought is offered as : a very good forged Blade done by a very good Empu
and as : a nice item from the old days of Indonesia.
Well, these are a few characteristics that do not come to my mind when I see this keris. I would suggest to return the item, and get a nice bottle of 20 year old scotch whisky
