Keris Sundang Moro Luk 5 Ganjar Seiras 0711.

Keris Sundang Moro Luk 5 Ganjar Seiras 0711 – Another rather rare example of a long keris called the sundang from the southern Philippine region of Mindanao. Newly made fittings has the hilt and top sheath made from well selected kemuning woods with flashing grains, and fine rattan wrappings and a carved mother of pearl bottom tip.

Long, thick and very sturdy blade, with 5 waves located at the base of the blade, and well executed base features or perabots typical of the region’s style, has the base cross piece or ganjar made one with the blade and is called ganjar seiras. The hilt blade contraption is using the typical double clamp like attachments called the baca-baca.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations, which is said to enhance the owner’s material well being.

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 blade with newly made fittings.

Length of blade: 21".   Overall length: 28.3".
