Default Keris Madura, pamor options?

Hi all,

Found this keris yesterday, keris seems old, the rest looks more recent.
It smells lovely. That the main reason I bought it.

Looking for the pamor options, my first though was Sumur Sinaba or Rante.
Please advise about the pamor (if possible)

thanks

regards Patrick

The pamor pattern is not very specific, rather worn-out and indinstinct, so I would just identify it as pamor mlumah.

Yes, this blade is very badly eroded and it is difficult to name a specific motif.

As Jean has said, it is pamor mlumah, that is, a "laying down" pamor, the layers of pamor material parallel with the blade core, but I think that I can see evidence of surface manipulation, I feel it might have been made as something like bendo sagodo or maybe santa.

Please note I have used "feel", this opinion is a not definite.
