Gio, i'm going to eliminate your other threads on this subject with the missing and under-sized photos.
Looks like a nice Bugis keris to me...

Yes, it looks a nice Bugis kris from Malaysia or East Sumatra with full pamor pattern Timpalaja (roof ridge)/ Tebba Jampu (similar to Ngulit Semangka)/ Teppobaja (Wengkon) according to the Sulawesi names.
Best regards

Jean, you mean it is a "tiga warna" pamor ? I thought it could be a "dwi warna" (ujung gunung & ngulit semangka).
By the way, I have no idea of what a timpalaja pamor looks like. Maybe similar to ujung gunung ?
Many thanks for your kind advice.

Very nice keris Gio, congrats. Agree with Jean about the origin but would guess that it is a Sumatra/Straits Bugis keris.
Great work regarding the pendokok, very well done. I personally would give the scabbard back it's buntut.

Regards,
Detlef

Dear Gio,
As I said the names I gave are those apparently used in Sulawesi (refer to the Bugis kris book if you have it). Yes, Pamor Timpalala is the triangular motif at the base, and there is a clear Teppobaja/ Wengkon frame.
Regarding the buntunt at the tip of the scabbard: if there was a hole, you did well to add a buntut but if the tip of the scabbard was closed, it means that it was the original design (it seems common in Malaysia)

Best regards

Jean, thanks for clarifying. In fact I do not have the book on Bugis keris.
Best regards
