Hi Brian,

I donít doubt that the quality of the Tipu sword is very high, my comment on the business of the design is my personnel opinion of designs in general, and I might very well change my mind if I had had an opportunity to see the sword.
The sword display is very nice, and so is the keris. BTW of the mails I have read about kerises I donít remember to have seen any references to kerieses being used in India Ė they were, so maybe the keris you show Ďfitsí into the picture. In Robert Elgoods new book there are pictures showing warriors armed with a keris and a tulwar.
