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

Punial Lurus Philippines 0821.

Punial Lurus Philippines 0821 - A good example of a short dagger from the southern Philippine regions. Handle made of hard kemuning woods and having silver alloy  metal base and guard, with the wooden sheath encased with well reposed silver bands and a clip protrusion to assist in usage.

Very sturdy blade with prominent spine and sharp double edges with a pointy tip. The punial is not classified as a keris as it lacks many characteristics of the keris.

Pamor patterns are not contrasting, which is the norm from the area, due to the non nickel metals used. From the forging lines the arrangements are of the mlumah technique and are of the wos utah or scattered rice variations.

Condition: Very good condition.

Age:  Krises and other edge weapons from the region 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: 7".   Overall length: 11".

Price:- Singapore SGD$370 excluding shipping.
