Actually I only have one junggayan hilted kris - the one at the top but sadly the crest and the beak broke off a long time ago before it passed on to me. The 3 other ones with the large kakatua hilts are danganans. I think it's just a coincidence that all but one of the ivory-hilted kris swords I currently own are straight-bladed. But hey, I consider myself a novice collector so I couldn't say that for sure.
