Default Keris Solo for comment

I've got a really oversized keris that should be from Solo.

I don't know if this keris is realy solo or more north coast, i've put a normal Solo keris next to it to see as comparison.
The dress looks very Solo to me.

please comment

The scabbard & hilt are in Solo style indeed, but the blade with ganja wulung rather looks in Tuban or North Coast style, it seems to have age but other opinions are welcome.

I tend to agree with you Jean.

There were some mighty big blades that came out of the North Coast, and also from the far East of Jawa.

However, I'd very much like to see a photo looking straight down onto the top of the gonjo before I'd be prepared to name a tentative classification.

Dress is certainly Solo.

Incidentally, the normal size keris, although it may have an indicator that could be regarded as Solo is also extremely unlikely to be classifiable as Solo.

Pesi David.

In Javanese "peksi" means "bird".
