Great info though. Please keep it coming.

Dear David,

Yes, yes, yes...... You are right. Exactly. "Nyoren" always on left thigh. And that is one of the reasons, why Sundanese kerises most of them are longer in blade size. Like swords. Sometimes, they wear smaller kerises at rear. But many more on their thigh.

These other specimen below, is Cirebonese but could be called Sundanese too, collection of Pancaniti Museum of Indramayu, about less than 100 km from Cirebon...
