I agree that this kris is very nicely crafted, but would put it more at the very end of the 20th century. It could even be early 21st century.
My take on this is that it is more likely a high end souvenir piece than anything made for legitimate cultural use such as a ceremony. This is not a criticism per se, just an observation on who would be most likely to be the first owner of such a kris.
