Thanks for the additional pics, Shayde!

I should not run from memory - Kebo Giri Luk Lima is probably correct. (Both dhapur are very similar and both can have luk added; the base features are slightly different with the extensive greneng on this piece pointing towards giri rather than kanthong.)

I am still not sure whether the luk in your piece have been added later: The blade in this section is considerably more slender. However, these kebo/mahesa blades are often quite worn and usually seem to have been of somewhat more moderate craftsmanship to begin with. If you compare the examples shown in the linked threads, you'll notice small deviations/inconsistancies and especially those with luk can appear a bit ungainly. Thus, these luk might as well be original.
