Keris Patani Luk 7 Pandai Saras 6 Ron Dha 0721  A very good and rare example of a keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular regions of Kelantan and Patani, southern Thailand. Handle in the kerdas or pistol grip form, is made from very well selected kemuning woods, with contrasting grains. Top sheath or sampir is made from the same kemuning woods with flashing grains. The bottom stem or batang is made from angsana woods with a fine pierced through silver pendoko or ferrule to complete fittings.

Long and sturdy straight blade with prominent triangular spine typical of the regions styles, has very well executed base features or perabots with and overall shape or dapor called pandai saras. The example shown is having not only having 4 ron dhas on the grenengs, but also 2 at the jenggots. Usually there is only 3 at the grenengs and one at the jenggot.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique showing vertical lines called pamor adeg or standing pamor. 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 early 19th century.

Length of blade: 15".   Overall length: 18".

Price:- US$570 excluding shipping.
