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

Keris Patani Luk 7 Carita. 

Keris Patani Luk 7 Carita Another very good and rare example of a keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular region of Patani and Kelantan. Handle in the form of the pekaka is made of kemuning woods, with the top sheath in a very unusual form made of teak woods. The bottom stem is of angsena, and bottom tip is in the form called the patat lipas, or roaches' back.

Long and very sturdy blade with prominent spine and deep double fullers. The base features or perabots are complete and also very well executed with the typical Patani features.

Blade is pattern welded but using higher carbon metals without contrasting nickel pamor lines. The stress on practicality from region is shown from the temper mark, or nyepuhan, which is seen from the darker shades at the edges that extend till the base of the blade.
The blade is very well tempered that it can lift a coin with just a slight tap at the tip or edges.

Condition: Very g

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 to late 19th century.

Length of blade: 14.8".   Overall length: 21".
