Thank you for posting this IFICAH video Marco. I've met Dietrich Drescher 1994 on Bali, indeed a very knowledge person.

Regards,
Detlef

Thanks Marco. I've been waiting a long time for them to put this up with English subtitles. I hadn't checked back in a while. Good to finally check this out!

Well, I watched it.

I took me nearly 2 hours, because I took notes and kept on stopping it and going back to check.

Frankly, I am surprised.

I will make no comment, but what others may have to say will interest me.

There is a place in the discussion where Mr. Drescher mentions Pamor Poleng Wengkon, and Yosoroto ( a kampung in Solo) but is unable to recall the name of the pande with whom he worked in Yosoroto.

That Pande was Empu Pauzan Pusposukadgo, or as he preferred to be titled "Pande Seni Keris Pauzan Pusposukadgo" .

I seem to recall that this keris was presented to a Government Minister, Surono, at a ceremony held at the ASKI in Solo, in 1979.

Mr. Drescher designed this pamor motif, and Pauzan Pusposukadgo made the keris. Below is a photo of the keris, and the working drawings provided by Mr. Drescher detailing its construction.

I noted that the titanium herring was mentioned in this interview.

China has the world's largest reserves of titanium, and 14% of China's iron ore reserves contain titanium and vanadium. In fact, titanium is present on earth at a level of about 0.6% which places it in fourth place of structural metals after aluminium, iron and magnesium.

The role of China in the development of Javanese culture, technology, society and religion has been vastly underestimated.

This link will show exactly where early Javanese smiths got the material for their products, and when considered together with the nature of that material that they used will explain the development of pamor.

https://maritimeasia.ws/topic/iron.html

During the Early Classical Period there was high input to Javanese culture and society from the Indian Sub-continent, but during the East Jawa period Chinese involvement in Javanese affairs played an increasingly important role.

Thanks for this supplemental information Alan, especially both the image and the working drawings of the Empu Pauzan Pusposukadgo keris.
