Default A pair of keris with highly stylized pamor

This is another pair I was curious to know more about. One has a highly stylized pamor and the other is rather smaller and not so flashy.

Both blades exhibit dhapur tilam upih.

The smaller keris may be just out of stain; it apparently has lost some substance due to age/erosion.

The larger one seems to be quite decent: the pamor family is mlumah (i.e. horizontal layers) and would be considered a random pattern.

Regards,
Kai

I don't think tilam upih is ever wavy, is it?

Ouch, that was a no-brainer, sorry. Thanks, Alan!

13 luk, pejetan, and tikel alis: Make that out of pakem keraton Surakarta for the longer piece, I guess.

Yeah, I think so.

But it could well be within pakem somewhere else.

The little one I'm not real sure of either, it looks like it might have a tikel alis, but its not real clear on my monitor.
