Hi Stefan,

This is not a keris but a kris since it's from the Philippines. Good old blade, end of 19th to very early 20th century with later handle and scabbard. Have you tried to polish the metal parts? And I would polish the blade and would give it an etch with vinegar, it will show a nice lamination IMO.

Regards,
Detlef
