Keris Jawa Luk 3 Sengkol.

Keris Jawa Luk 3 Sengkol – A good and rare example of a keris form the central Javanese regions. Fittings in the sandang walikat forms are made from well selected woods with natural flashing grains, and a silver ferrule studded with zircons completes fittings.

Broad and sturdy blade with 3 waves or luks has a rare overall shape or dapor called sengkol.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique, and are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations. It is said to enhance eth owner’s material well being.

Condition: Very g
ood 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 early 17th century blade with newly made fittings.

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