Does anyone know the name of this pamor?

By the way, my given name is Keoni, if you prefer to address me by it. Since I know many of yours after a few years of reading posts on this forum...
Hi Keoni,

Congratulation! A nice keris indeed.. I agree that the hilt ring, is less appropriate. The flat bugis brass pendokok, would be simple and matching to this piece.. The pamor is known as 'katang tebu' (in malay).. meaning, sections of sugarcane.. with pamor 'gunungan' at the base.
