Default Enquiry on Balinese keris pamor

Is this also consider cucumber seeds pamor in Bali context? This is a balinese bilah.

Not in my experience Anthony.

I do not know this pamor as a Balinese pamor.

I know this pamor as Javanese or Madurese.

The surface finish of this blade does not look like a Balinese finish, it looks like a very recent blade that has been artificially aged in the Jawa/Madura style.

I do not know this pamor as wiji timun, however, it seems to be very likely that many people do know it as wiji timun, so just because I don't know it as that doesn't mean much.

Hi Alan

Noted with thanks. I think I have chosen a wrong type of pamor for this keris.
