Default Last one: A Keris Madura

Looks to be a small, well worn, keris Madura. The wooden hilt is quite simple by Madurese standards. The wrangka is more impressive.

Insights appreciated.

AFAIK this style of hilt is called sandang walikat. A nice and old specimen of Madurese kris.

Is sandang walikat derived from kocet kocetan? The first two pictures particularly brought that to mind.

These North Carolina swap meets tend to be quite the happening place.

No, sandang walikat designates a style of triangular kris scabbard from Java or Madura, see attached specimen, and also apparently a style of Madurese hilt, see pic.

By the way, the pendok seems to be missing and the black horn inserts on the gandar are probaly more recent than the waranga itself.

Are the hilts called sandang walikat because the hilt profile is triangular like the scabbard? Would Sanjen's post #43 of this thread, http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showth...ghlight=repair, contain sandang walikat hilts as well, even though these hilts are planar and not carved?
