Default Newly made Bali Keris?

This one just ended on eBay:
http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWAX:IT
I have a gut feeling that this Keris is modern made, but its blade looks surprisingly similar to the good old Bali blades. It seems that the level of the modern smiths who make Bali style blades (on Madura?) is really high. Any other ideas or comments?

I agree: recently made blade, but with great workmanship.
Hilt and scabbard not up to the blade

Interestingly I just bought a similar Balinese 15-luk keris,
but mine has a straight ganja without pamor. Difficult to tell,
but my keris might be a bit older than the one posted by
Tatyana.
