Keris Melayu Riau Lurus Sepokal 0222.

Keris Melayu Riau Lurus Sepokal 0222 - A good example of a keris from the southern Sumatran regions of Riau Lingga. Handle in the jawa demam form and top sheath in the tebeng form, are made from well selected kemuning woods with flashing grains. Bottom stem is made from angsana woods having a horn bottom tip in the patat lipas or roaches back form. A thick brass ferrule or pendoko completes fittings.

Very sturdy blade is straight or lurus but with an angled profile, having an overall shape or dapor called sepokal.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the mlumah technique of the wos utah or scattered rice variations, having a mountain peak formation at the base called pamor ujung gunung.

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.

Length of blade: 14".   Overall length: 18".
