Keris Jawa Majapahit Lurus Blarak Ngirid 0120.

Keris Jawa Majapahit Lurus Blarak Ngirid 0120- A very rare pre Islamic example of a keris from the island central Jawa. Fittings in the ladrangan forms with the top sheath made of well grained trembalo woods, and hilt made from hard well grained sawo woods, with bottom stem fully encased with a well repossed brass stem cover or pendok bunton.

Straight or lurus blade, with a slight bent or cenderong in Javanese, is rather flimsy at the top half, which is common for older blades, which are made more talismanic in rather than practical in use. 

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique, showing the rare pamor blarak ngirid or coconut leaf pamor, which is said to enhance the 9wner's status.

Condition: Aside from edge wears due to age, rest is all in 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 late 15th century, with 19th century fittings.

Length of blade: 13".   Overall length: 20".

Price:- US$370 excluding shipping.
