Default Ladrang remodelled?

Hi All,

i was wondering if there are good images of Surakarta or Solo Ladrang warangka that has been altered or remodelled after the Angkup was lost?

Hope to gain some more info as i can't find it on the internet. Or is it common to replace the whole dress of the Keris when a warangka has damage that is beyond restoring it to acceptable apereance?

regards,

Martin

Hello Martin,

Never have seen such an approach, sorry. I have had similar problems before, see here: http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showth...ght=keris+kebo
Like you can see I've given the blade a used and refurbished scabbard.

Regards,
Detlef

Hi Detlef,

the loss of material at your Ladrang example is huge, i mean when the curved tip is gone broken off. Are there examples of chaninging the ladrang in a less elaborate form. by shaping the front more round or so.

regards, Martin

Hi Martin,

I understand correct, like I said, I never have seen such a modification.

Detlef

Hopefully Alan Maisey will tag in because i am pretty sure i remember him talking about such modifications being made to a damaged ladrang in the past. My apologies Alan if i have misremembered this.
