Default 2 interesting keris pamor?

Hi, I am curious to learn more about these 2 keris? The pamor looks controlled to me. Both keris have white markings towards the base that read "Indonesia." It looks like maybe it was written using wite-out liquid. I would appreciate any information on the style and form of these two. Thanks!

Hello Apolaki,

Yes, both exhibit controlled pamor: The first is surface manipulated while the latter got twisted.

The blades will be recent (karmadikan). The fittings are of pretty mundane quality though.

The writing may be for custom purposes. Where did you come across these keris?

Supposed pamor types:
Bonang rineteng and Buntel mayit.
Highly appreciated but these are pretty recent examples of course.
