Default Keris to share

I was drawn to the handle on this keris. It has a lovely reddish hue that old wood gets from many, many years. I also like the big beefy blade.

Hello Rick,

The hilt does seem to have some age, indeed. Quite well carved, too - these are much less common than more modern interpretations.

Regards,
Kai

To me, the hilt stands out as the real gem of this ensemble
