Keris Melayu Patani Luk 9 Adeg Mrambut 0714.

Keris Melayu Patani Luk 9 Adeg Mrambut 0714 - Another very good example of a keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular region of Kelantan. Well carved handle in the jawa demam form with the top sheath in the tebeng form are made from well selected kemuning woods. Bottom stem is made from very well selected angsana woods with tiger's stripe grains, and a thick brass pendoko or ferrule to complete fittings.

Thick and very sturdy blade with 9 waves or luks, and thick prominent triangular spine, has an overall shape or dapor called pandai mamat(?) in Malay.

Pamor patterns are usually not using contrasting from the region, but this examples shows pamor patterns arranged in the miring technique of the adeg mrambut or sanding hairs variations. It is said to protect the owner’s against 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 19th century.

Length of blade: 11".   Overall length: 15.5".
