Keris Melayu Lurus Sepokal Selip 0722.

Keris Melayu Lurus Sepokal Selip 0722 - Very good and rather rare example of a short keris from the southern Malaysian peninsular region of Selangor or Johore. Handle in the kerdas or pistol grip form and top sheath in the tebeng forms, are made from well selected kemuning woods with the bottom stem made from angsana woods having a silver metal ferrule or pendoko to complete fittings.

Very short blade with plain base features or perabots, having a straight or lurus profile but having and angular bent, has an overall shape or dapor called sepokal in Malay.
The short nature of the blade is also called selip in Malay, and is associated to ceremonial of a boy's use.

Pamor patterns are arranged in the miring technique of the adeg or standing variations. which is said to protect the owner in times of chaos.

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 middle 19th century.

Length of blade: 9.5".   Overall length: 15".

Price:- Singapore SGD$350 excluding shipping.
