Default Is this an example of Gustavís element

Please forgive me for the reference to Gustavís element but that is the terminology used in a lengthy thread sometime ago. Was wondering if this KERIS exhibits the same features as the early keris shared in that thread.

Hello RSWORD,

no, it's a conventional Greneng on a relatively young blade. The "Dha" element on Greneng is so to say abbreviated, without the small "teath" in the middle (like the one on Jenggot), but that's a feature we sometimes see also on older blades.

The keris shown in this thread are Balinese and parungsari is a Javanese dhapur AFAIK, so i would think not, though they do fulfill many of the ricikan requirements for that particular Javanese dhapur.
