Couldn't it be that all depends on the appreciation given by the people. A man can start as 'pandai keris', but if his work is really good and a lot of people appreciate it, I guess, it's possible that he obtains the status of 'empu'. Then he is seen by all as a 'master of his craft'.

This, of course, not only goes for keris makers, it's appliable to all craftsmen.
