Default Questions about a Keris

I found this keris today. Comments are welcome. Nicely made, with visible pamor, and a 'combong'. Is this a 'magical' keris? Yes, I know, it's a loaded question. I'm only partly serious. Sort of. Total length 6 & 1/2 inches.

Interesting keris. It does appear that this is a keris that had legitimate "combong" (complong), unlike the vast majority of blades claim to be complong that just have a hole worn through the sogokan from years if acid washing or an opening caused by an accidental forging failure. That and the small size seem to indicate this is a talismanic blade, a term i think might be more apt than "magical"
The stylized planar hilt is very interesting to me as well. I don't know that i have ever seen one quite like it.

Default thank you!

Thank you for your reply. It confirms what I believe about this keris. I've already been offered cash for this, but as I told them, "I've already bonded with this keris". I like it very much.
