Albert, i think this post will probably find more interest in the Keris Swap rather than the general Ethno Swap, so i am moving it.

That might be better. If we want to consolidate responses to your questions it isn't a good idea to revive every old post on the subject. We can place links to these old posts all under one heading...

I think that is a great idea. It should be one that covers all the basics and i will have to look through what we have and see what works best. Though it might be easier to repeat what has been said...

When i suggested that your assessment was "fairly accurate" i was referring to everything you had written, not specifically your dating of the blade. I definitely agree that in 1982 there probably...

Thanks for adding your observations Alan. Charles has since added a few more photos that would indeed put us in agreement about this keris. I also agree that "twisted core" is probably a misnomer,...

Beautiful keris Charles! And yes, that is indeed unusual pamor. Besides this twisted core it also appears to have a small kul buntet pamor at the base, often considered a royal pamor. Can you supply...

Alan has provided you with what i would think is a fairly accurate assessment. For future reference, virtually no keris were being produced in the mid-1900 (1940-1960). WWII seems to have put a...

I agree with Ian. The motifs on this sheath look Javanese to me, not Luzon or any other culture from the Philippines and the form of this clearly looks like a West Javanese Gobang Bandung to me.

I agree with Alan in the hilt. Recent, but certainly not "mass-produced".
As for the sarong, i have to admit that it has a certain "charm". It is certainly not saying it is something that would be...

I wasn't suggesting that this man's daughter lied to you to make a sale. But family histories often get confused and muddled especially more than 3 decades later.

I agree with Alan's assessment here. This is an antique Bali blade in a kitschy modern dress. As Alan pointed out, this sheath would have no proper place for wear within Balinese society and is...

I do have to say that i seriously doubt this keris could be 60 or even 50 years old give the the time frame in which the keris arts were resurrected. I this most...

I have to agree that this hilt is not ivory. I think I might go with bone rather than antler due to the black spotting.
I also think, from what I can see on my phone, that this hilt form might...

Godfried, does this knife seem to have been made in concert with the Mandau it accompanies? Is this red material used anywhere on the Mandau? Can we see the Mandau and sheath as well?

Your answer does seem to imply that there was indeed a time, place and situation where the gonjo did serve a “practical mechanical function”. Let’s start there. What would that have been?
