Question First Keris acquired

G'day,
I purchased this keris locally, I liked the way it felt in the hand and the blade looked old to me. Could this be a short Bali keris? I'm guessing the hilt and mendak are newer? The scabbard fits blade. I have also included a hilt that I guess is modern?
Blade length from hilt 14 3/4 in.
Blade thickness at hilt 1/2 in.
Comments on age and origin would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Daniel
