Default Herded buffalo...

Nice to see you again, Detlef....

Yes, it could be called "kebo giri" as mentioned by Alan (pls refer too to Keris Ensiklopedi, Bambang Harsrinuksmo). Giri means mountain.

But it could be also called as "kebo kanthong" as mentioned by Haryono Haryoguritno in his "Keris Jawa" book (2005) keris with extreme long gandhik and long pejetan. Haryono also mentioned keris with very long gandhik as "kebo giring" (herded buffallo) as the word "giring" means to herd cattles...
