Keris Bali Ulu Grantiman Rambut 1217.

Keris Bali Ulu Grantiman Rambut 1217 - Another very good example of a keris from the island of Bali. Top sheath in the gayaman Bali form is made from ketangga woods, with the bottom stem made from sono keling woods. The handle in the grantiman form, is made of wood and entwined with twisted human hairs.

Very sturdy, straight or lurus blade, has well defined base features or perabots, typical of the Balinese styles.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique showing only circumferential pamor lines called pamor wengkon, which is said to protect the owner from natural mishaps.

Condition: Ve
ry 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.

Length of blade: 18".   Overall length: 24.5".
