Default Pamorless

Usually Iíve acquired a keris due to its pamor but this time I prefer pamor-less (keleng).

Here is the pamor-less keris with dhapur Mangkurat Mangkunegara.

Thank you in advance for your comments

Cheers,

Hey ! Got a simple question here. Do we assume it's a newly made keris ?

I believe so. The blade has pudak sategal (hooks) on the sides and a very odd ganja tail. The dhapur name is correct. Modern piece...

Yes, I also believe it is a modern Keris.

If I remember correctly (correct me if Iím wrong), Alan once said that pudhak sategal is not a feature found in old Keris.

Cheers,

Yes, if these are gemstones they possibly are moonstones, but this style of mendak often has an ivory or bone insert rather than gemstones, usually where gemstones are used they are put into a setting. Where ivory or bone is used it is an insert in the shape of a ring.
