Keris Patani Bugis Luk 7. 

Keris Patani Bugis Luk 7 – A very good and rare example of a keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular regions of Patani or Kelantan. Handle in the kerdas form is made from hard ketengga woods with natural contrasting grains, and the top sheath is made of kemuning woods with natural flashing grains. The bottom stem is made of angsena woods with tiger’s stripe grains, and well repoussed thick brass ferrule or pendoko completes fittings.

Very sturdy blade with 7 meandering luks and has the base features or perabots very well executed with the typical Bugis influenced hexagonal cross section features.

Blade is pattern welded with pamor arranged in the mlumah technique. At the base a peak like formation is seen and is called tunggak semi, and above it are pamor patterns of the wos utah or scattered rice variations.

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.

Length of blade: 15.5".   Overall length: 20.6".
