Keris Melayu Bugis Luk 9 Adeg 310.

Keris Melayu Bugis Luk 9 Adeg 310 Another very good example of a keris from the southern Malaysian peninsular regions of Selangor or Johore. Handle in the kerdas or pistol grip form, as well as the top sheath in the tebeng form, are made from well selected kemuning woods with natural flashing grains. Bottom stem is made from well selected angsana woods with a finely repoussed thick brass pendoko or ferrule to complete fittings.

Thick and very sturdy blade with 9 waves or luks, and unusually very simple, but strong base features or perabots with an overall shape or dapor is referred to as sempana(?) in Javanese.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique of the adeg or standing variation. It is said to protect the owner from natural mishaps.

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 late 18th century blade with newly made fittings.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 18.5".
