Keris Patani Lurus Pandai Saras Pamor Miang 909.

Keris Patani Lurus Pandai Saras Pamor Miang 909 – A very good example of a keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular regions of Kelantan and Patani, southern Thailand. Handle in the anak ayam teleng or cuddling chick form, is made from well selected kemuning woods, having fine carvings at places that needs added mentioning. Top sheath or sampir is made from the rarer ketengga woods with naturally occurring contrasting as well as flashing grains. The bottom stem or batang is made from well selected angsana woods with tiger stripe grains that occur due to windy conditions. A finely repoussed pierced through silver pendoko or ferrule completes fittings.

Exceptionally 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.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique, and are of the wos
utah or scattered rice variations. The presence of crystalline like or homogenous effect along the pamor line is rare, and is called pamor miang in Malay.

The pamor wos
utah is said to enhance the owner’s material well being while the pamor miang is highly sought after for its strong protective properties.

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 middle 19th century blade and sheath, with late 20th century handle and silver ferrule.

Length of blade: 17.2".   Overall length: 21.5".
