Hi folks, something for showing off today. I love it very much but also would like to ask for your constructive opinions about it. This is keris Ligan or Pedang, made in Bali with straight dapur and ending with luk.

The title of the post got my attention.
I've never seen anything like it (a combination of luk and lurus in a single blade), with the exception of dapur urubing dilah.
What's the length and weight/mass of the wilah (preferably in standard/Imperial units in lieu of, or in addition to metric)?
And, if you happen to know who the pande is...
Thank you.
Mickey
Postscript: And what do you (personally), as well as they (whomever you acquired the keris from and/ or made it) call that pamor?

Pamor Tambangan Badung, equivalent to Buntel Mayat/ Mayit in Java. :)

Hi, I saw it in a book before and that why commissioned it based on that copy. estimate 18th century. I do not have the length yet as the item is still in Bali, pending dress making. The maker does not share his real name. I only know him as Mangmong.

Hello Anthony,

The pamor looks nice! A close-up of the base would be great.

There certainly are quite a few variations of keris pedang from Bali/Lombok - the addition of luk is unusual for sure.

Please post a pic of that old example (BTW, that is covered by the legitimate use principle). Thanks a lot!

Regards,
Kai
