Keris Jawa Luk 13 Untuk Walang 0422.

Keris Jawa Luk 13 Untuk Walang 0422 Very good example of a keris from the central Javanese regions of Surakarta. Fittings in the gayaman Solo forms s made from well selected woods with the sheath made from a single piece of woods or seiras. handle is made from dark hard woods with a silver mendak or ferrule to comple. A plain brass open sleeve cover or pendok blewah exposes the single piece of woods without any joints.

Very sturdy blade with 13 waves or luks and prominent spine, has very well executed base features or perabots, with an overall shape or dapor called sangkelat.

Very well arranged pamor patterns are forged in the mlumah technique of the kulit semangko or melon skin pamor, with the edges having fine jagged lines called pamor untuk walang or grasshopper's teeth.
 

Condition: 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 to late 20th century.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 19.5".

Price:- US350 excluding shipping.
