Alan, I was actually being nice to my fellow countryman
I speak Jawanese, but mostly ngoko, and very little kromo.
To my friend ParongSari, please go thru some of the early topics in the warung kopi, and if possible try to dig up more informative posts in the archive. I recommend you search the topics related to fighting with keris, and I believe we have a few, then you will get a better understanding of what a keris Jawa means to a Jawanese as far as fighting is concerned. Also, there are plenty of posts regarding Malay keris philosophy.
