Keris Terengganu Lurus Sepokal Beka.

Keris Terengganu Lurus Sepokal Beka – A good and rare example of a keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular region of Terengganu. Handle in the kerdas form and the top sheaths are made from very well selected kemuning woods with natural contrasting and flashing grains. The bottom stem is made from angsena woods with tiger’s stripe grains. A well repoussed thick brass ferrule or pendoko completes fittings.

Very sturdy blade with an angular profile and rather plain base features except for some minute fretworks or grenengs. It has an overall shape or dapor called sepokal in Malay.

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

Condition: Very good condition. Aside from minor patching at the sheath’s neck joints, rest is all in 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: 12.3".   Overall length: 15.7".
