Keris Sundang Melayu Lurus Pamor 510.

Keris Sundang Melayu Lurus Pamor 510 – Very rare form of a long slashing keris called the sundang. From the northern Malaysian region of Kelantan or Terengganu, the handle is in the typical cockatoo bird pommel, and made from well grained hardwoods having a horn panels at the sides. Sheath also in the typical Malay sandang walikat form, also made from similar well grained wood as the handle.

Long and very sturdy blade with very well executed base features or perabots, having a shallow fuller along the middle of the blade where pamor patterns are seen.

Usually without contrasting pamor lines, this blade has the mid sectioned along the fullers, patterns arranged in the miring technique called lawe saukel (Javanese) or untwining thread. It is said to enhance the owner’s status.

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 mid to late 20th century.

Length of blade: 28.4".   Overall length: 29.7".
