Default New Kris off ebay

Not going to mention the seller as he is on the forum and can chime in if he wants to. If you saw the listing ya'all know who it is anyway.
I read the description very carefully and looked at the pics even closer. I am a firm believer in buy the sword not the story. However in this case I think the story was spot on, if not a little understated! I do think it is closer to 18th than 19th century. If it is 19th it is very early. It as more in common with my archaic pieces then it has differences. Full disclaimer; I am pretty much a sucker for the archaic ones. When I saw the pics I did think there could be a twist core under there. Upon closer inspection, I don't think so but the laminations are killer.
