Hi, don

try this book:
- Traditional Weapons of the Indonesian Archipelago by Albert G. Van Zonneveld
- The Weapons and Fighting Arts of Indonesia by Donn F. Draeger

try Ensklopedia Keris by. Mr Bambang, for information about keris and you can read in bahasa.

just my 2 cent, hope this helps

Hello Don,

Here are three sources in The Netherlands where there is a lot to be found:

http://ccindex.kit.nl/index.asp?lang=en (Database Tropenmuseum, Amsterdam)

http://www.rmv.nl/index.aspx?lang=en (Database National Museum of Ethnology, Leiden)

http://www.kitlv.nl/hisdoc.html (Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Carribean Studies)

Success!
Albert
