I don't know if it is unusual, but it is a beautiful example of modern keris art. Is the border actually a second pamor (wengkon) or is this part of the main pamor?

Thanks for appreciation.
About pamor...really i don't know
About the age the seller, a very nice (and very famous) Yogya man that i know from 25 years told me this keris was made before the last II° war.

Thumbs up

Nice example Marco.
In your close-up of the sorsoran the kembang kacang looks very elephant-like!
I think I even see an elephant's eye .

I also love the wengkon.

Thanks all for appreciations.
Ferrylaki you are right. Pamor seems a little to Kupu Tarung . (About kupu tarung : in my experience is very difficult to find it....from some years i'm looking one opamor like this....but nothing good! ......i remember Ganjawulung has a very nice one )

it seem we have the same taste on this kupu tarung pamor. I've been wondering if I 'm lucky enough to find a keris with kupu tarung pamor.
It's a hard to find

Hello Marco,
In my opinion, the pamor of this blade is not Kupu Tarung (see Pamoratlas for instance). I have my own idea (see pictures 11A and 16B in my book) but I leave to you guys to determine which pamor it is...
Cheers
Jean

Hello Marco,
This is a keris with a similar pamor in my collection, I have classified it as Ganggeng Kanyut?
Best regards

Hello gentlemen,
Is this pamor Kupu Tarung? The blade is part of a keris from Borneo, it needs warangan treatment.
Best regards

Dear Marco, is it the "kupu tarung" you meant -- almost a year ago?

Is it? But two years ago, I saw a kupu tarung -- much beautiful than this in Yogyakarta. According to the owner, it was a "kaping piton" (HB VII) kupu tarung, straight blade, with a very neat kupu tarung pamor. I suggested you to took (buy) it, in front of the owner, but you chose to take the "walang sinundukan"... Why?

About one month later, that beautiful kupu tarung was bought by someone from Jakarta -- twice the price the former owner offered to you. Do you remember that beautiful kupu tarung in Yogyakartan branggah warangka?

Any way, your "ron genduru" is attractive too. You may regard the "lar gangsir" leaves inside the ron gendhuru....
