Keris Sundang Moro Luk 9 Datuk Status 0422.
Keris Sundang Moro Luk 9 Datuk Status 0422 - A very good and rare example of a status keris sundang from the Mindanao regions of Philippines. Handle in the typical cockatoo pommel form is made from wood and is encased with silver at the top and silver wire weavings at the grip. Wooden sheath is made from well selected red woods with flashing grains.
Long and very sturdy blade with 9 sublime waves or luks and very well executed base features or perabots, having the brass hilt to blade attachment called the baca-baca.
Pamor patterns are very condense and are arranged in the
miring technique of the adeg or standing variations, concentrating
along the middle of the blade.
Base of the blade also has floral motifs inlaid with silver.
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 blade and hilt, with 20th century wooden sheath.
Length of blade: 21". Overall length: 29".
