This kris is in the Museo del EjÚrcito (Army Museum) in Toledo, Spain. My thoughts on its age were similar to those expressed above, despite the fact that I have long carried a strong suspicion that some kris and budiak specimens are significantly older than we believe. I included the kampilan and Igorot axe for scale, I'd say this kris is little smaller than most, but not by that much.
This is why I present this example with a documented date of presentation of 1835 and entry shortly thereafter into the museum.
