I don't want to go there Jaga.

If you're a hardcore Kejawen practicing Solo based ahli keris you'd prpbably say 600AD to 800AD --- more or less, the old Kingdom of Galuh

If you're a bit less hardcore you're probably going to say around 1200AD.

If you're a bit of a rationalist you'll maybe opt for 16th century, west Jawa, same area that the old kingdom of Galuh was located.

If you are a hardcore rationalist with a little bit of knowledge of Javanese history you will just say old, pre-18th century.

But the thing this:- copies of Segaluh and almost all other classifications have been made right through to right now.

You decide who you would like to be and you can pick your own time frame.
