MALAY ART GALLERY'S....House of  Keris

Keris Melayu Luk 7 Tok Chu.

Keris Melayu Luk 7 Tok Chu A good example of a keris from the Malaysian peninsular regions of. Handle in then kerdas form and the top sheath are made from well selected burl woods or gembol. A bronze plated brass ferrule or pendoko completes fittings.

Sturdy blade with 7 waves or luks has an overall shape or dapor called Tok Chu in Malay.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique with the base having a peak like formation called ujung gunung and above are pamor wos utah or scattered rice.

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 and hilt, with late 20th century sheath and silver ferrule.

Length of blade: 12.5".   Overall length: 15.9".
