Default # 71 Swish of the Kris (Cato)

# 71 is depicted in Cato's "Moro Swords" and looks the same in the article "Swish of The Kris"

I see a book has been published just bought a copy. The kris on the cover does not look like ours

I had an online article and the Kris shown is ours. Looking for a copy.

My wife, Anne, says I have a twisted core. She is really amazing, studying Bhutanese architecture. Back to the Swish

Hi Bill:

The swords are similar but the one on the cover of the book has more luk (7 vs 5 in the sword you show).

Yes, the one on the book cover is different.

I think my kris was pictured in the online article displayed below. It was on the site in 2007. The link is now defunct. Wish I had saved the article. It was my kris.
