Keris Patani Lurus Pamor Sabit Bulan A very good example of akeris from the northern Malaysian peninsular region of Patani or Kelantan. Handle in the jawa demam form and the top sheaths are made from well selected kemuning woods. The bottom stem is made of angsena woods having a kemuning bottom tip in the form called the patat lipas or roaches back.

Very sturdy straight blade with prominent thick spine and has well executed and deep perabots or base features.

Pamor pattern are very condense and are arranged in the mlumah technique. They are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations and all pattern are unplanned or pamor tiban. A person with a good background on pamor patterns can find a few unplanned pamor tiban that has mystical references.

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 19th century with newly made fittings.

Length of blade: 13".   Overall length: 18.5".

Price:- US$455 excluding shipping.
