Keris Sundang Moro Luk 9 1019.

Keris Sundang Moro Luk 9 1019 - A good example of a keris from the southern Philippines region of Mindanao. Newly made fittings with the handle in the typical cockatoo bird form and the top sheath in the sandang walikat forms.

Long, very sturdy blade with 9 slender waves or luks, with typical base features or perabots, that includes the white metal attachments to the hilt called the baca-baca.

Pamor patterns are not contrasting, which is the norm from the area, due to the non nickel metals used. From the forging lines the arrangements are of the miring technique and are of the adeg or standing variations.

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 18th century blade with newly made fittings.

Length of blade: 21".   Overall length: 27.5".

Price:- US$290 excluding shipping.
