Default How does one describe this blade??

The good, the bad and the ugly...

I have no idea what I have here. Its been with me for years and came from an old French collection and if I recall correctly, in totally busted, what I thought was old Sulawesi dress with only the ivory hulu worth saving.

I suspect Java origins as many a Sulawesi Keris follow these routes.

All I know is that it is Luk five, Gonjo Iras and I suspect gandhik Kikik, although from the representation having engraved surfaces, it may fall under another name? It feels to have quite some age to it... how much eludes me.

Any direction, questions or input are most welcome.

And yes, it will be cleaned and restored :-)
