Default Moro Kris with rare shaped blade

Rare to me. I know of two others in existence ( I don't get around much), perhaps there are more residing in other collectors armory, one belongs to Justin and the other to Mabagani. At one point I offered to take it off their hands, but they were not ready to part with it.

I've always wanted one. This past April I was greatly honored when Dave and Lonna S., offered to take it off their display board and trade this one to me for a Borneo sword. Thanks Lonna and Dave.

1st one I have seen, so thanks so much for posting. Gorgeous piece!

The blade shape does not seem to alter in any way the way the kriss would be used in combat.

I have to wonder if this is "influenced" by something else, since this blade type/shape is not typically Moro.

Beautiful kris. I also have seen at least 2 others (maybe they are the same 2 you have seen) so this makes 3.

not really it's brass, I think.
It hasn't been polished, I don't think Dave S. polished it when it was on his display board.

Nice. Wonder if there is any significance or meaning to this kris?

Heres a pic of another kris with the same style blade. Forgot where I found this pic.

I know three, so with yours, it’s four.
https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/57613146_sundang
https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/78285221_sundang

And the last one, I can’t manage to find it again. Blade was short, large, well fullered and With a really heavy tip. Sold by czernys too. If I do not mistake, there was a Wierd combo, hilt from Bali and blade sundang or moro
The last one was far better than the other exemple.

Please don't just post a link but upload the pictures. Links disappear.
