Nice story.
It must be true as it is comming from the jade specialist

A very lifely keris, that changed from 13 to 9 luks somewhere in the description. Again proof of its special powers

Well, at least he has stopped using sympathy for his cancer as a selling point.

Sometimes this kind of occurrence really tells us why knowledge and experience are important.

Even a scholar can be cheated off something he barely knows...

Wow, imagine how special the warrior was, who owned this special flying dragon tiger ruby super magic tuah keris. (or something like that)
His influence crossed the Indian ocean all the way to africa

Yep, and i am as guilty as the next guy for making a comment that is aimed more at the seller than the keris itself. In fact, it seems to me that just about all of our comments on this thread are really directed towards the seller either directly or indirectly and at this point i don't see any constructive point to keeping the thread open. No fingers pointed anywhere here, but i think it's best if we put this one to bed.
