Default Bugis keris pamor pattern name

Dear members

Is this a new invented pamor or there is a name for it?

I'd call it a Wiji Timun (cucumber seeds) variation if it were Javanese. As Bugis I don't know.

Sorry but I do not see Wiji timun pamor and this is quite a recent blade. A batu lapak is visible at the sorsoran.

Yes Paul, i think Anthony is aware that this is a recent blade which is why he asked if the pamor pattern was a new invention.
Hopefully Alan will return and speak further about why he thinks it is a Wiji Timun variation.

I have made Wiji Timun, I have seen Wiji Timun made many times. This blade has been made in the same way. It is surface manipulation. The reason it looks different to the usual Javanese Wiji Timun is because the "seeds" are spaced more widely and the blade geometry is different to a Javanese blade.
