Default Keris 3 to share

Bad weather in germany, a keris to share. The concrete plates are square 40 cm to imagine the size. Any comments will be welcome.

Best Thomas

Interesting old kris from East Java or Madura, congrats! However the brass inserts on the gandar and the selut are of average quality.

I agree with Jean that this is a fair example of an old East Jawa/Madura keris. But for my money it would look nicer without the mismatched "lipstick". If the bands on the gandar are not functional (i.e. holding it together) i would be inclined to remove them.
