I'm not so sure the Tajong hilt goes with a Sumatran style execution keris, but that blade.... oh my, I like that.

That's EXACTLY what caught my eye and made me buy it! The pamor of the blade.

Gorgeous blade and a lovely hilt, but to paraphrase Rick, it is not a match made in heaven.

I'll jump on the band wagon here Marius.
Yes, that's a beautiful keris penyalang (or panjang). Looks like it is really nicely crafted. But the tajong hilt is completely wrong for this style keris. Below i have posted a number of styles that would be far more appropriate and if this were mine i would replace it with one.

Thank you very much for the very interesting information.

So the pamor is?!

For the time being I have no replacement hilt and I will have to keep like this at least for a while.

Anyhow, I have seen at least another long keris with a similar hilt so maybe they are not that unusually wrong?!
