Keris Bali Lurus Klabang Sayuto 0522.

Keris Bali Lurus Klabang Sayuto 0522 - A very good and rare example of a keris from the island of Bali. Handle in the typical Balinese bebondolan form, and top sheath in the dayaman Balinese form are made from very well selected pelet woods with natural contrasting grains. The bottom stem is half fully encased with finely repousse silver having gemstones insets, even present at the top and base of hilt.

Very long and sturdy blade is straight or lurus, with a prominent spine and very well executed base features or perabots, having an overall shape or dapor called jalak ngore.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique showing a "W" shape vertical formation called pamor klabang sayuto or centipede's legs, which is said to enhance the owner's status.

Very good condition.

Age:  Krises are traditionally made without any date stampings or engravings of the makers' name. Although a kris smith or "empu" has his own styles configured together with the dapor and especially the ganjar (cross piece). Obvious age wear and tear, usage, familiarity with forms, motifs and designs, origin and history, mediums and materials used are our guidelines in determining an approximate age. This particular piece, from our experience and knowledge, should go back to the middle 20th century.

Length of blade: 18".   Overall length: 25.5".
