Yes, it is possible to find current era blades of dhapur pasopati, however, they will not look like the one I made, as this is my interpretation. They will have the same overall appearance, and they will have the same features, but they will look different. Its the same with any art:- ask 20 artists to draw a tree, and each of those trees will be different.
I've got a cengkrong around somewhere, when I find it I'll post a pic.
The method published by Frey is in one of the later editions of his book. I do not know what he published, so I cannot comment.
The level of colour you have achieved is sufficient to read the pamor, so its OK. Not yet good, but OK.
