Indeed. As we have discussed many times before it is always a bit dubious to try to attach actual characters to many Balinese figural hilts unless there are solid and clear indicators for such...

No worries Charles.It was fairly recently actually. You should scan our forum more often. LOL! ;)
I could simply merge the two threads.
In the meantime i'd still love to know how long the blade is.

I am pretty sure that Anthony didn't make this dress. He did, however, commission it.
Thanks for the close-ups Anthony. The silver work is beautiful. I'm afraid i see Bali work and motifs here. I'm...

Peter, i'd like to know the blade length. I suspect this keris might well be anak alang, not panjang. :shrug:

Not sure why members haven't commented yet, but i think this is a beautiful new art keris. Very nice level of craft apparent here.
I will admit that i personally prefer more "legitimate" dhapurs,...

It's a very interesting blade. Cleaned up and shot from more angles i still din't think it's Javanese, but perhaps Alan knows better. :shrug:

Awesome, thanks! I definitely had the emphasis on the iron syllable with a few of these. Great to hear them spoken!

So Xasterix, but i see two rather different blade profiles here. The differences are subtle, but clear to me. :shrug:

To bring this back to the original heading description, i don't think i would describe this blade as having a "spear point".

Thanks Alan. This isn't new to me as you have described this many times in the past. But this approach to tangguh is one that seems to be consistently ignored these days. You have laid this out...

I don't think i'd call this style janggelan. Jean categorizes them separately in his recent hilt book, though only identifies them as "Floral Style" from Madura.

Yes, it does seem that an asang asang was not part of the latest hilting of this kris, but i suspect that there probably was one originally. The blade was certainly made to accommodate one.

Really? I cannot image copper being used as a pamor material as it has a melting point that is lower than most forging temperatures.

If i am not mistaken, Alan would often list keris for shipping as "Dhuwung-Indonesian handicraft made of metal and wood". :)

I agree with Alan that the top one is most probably Nawa Sari. I assume Alan wants to see the grain sheaf in the hand behind the back, but everything else about this hilt fits the commonly...

There most likely is, but as far as i know a bold and contrasty display is not traditional to these weapons as it would be for, say, a Javanese keris. ;)

As i believe Alan was pointing out in his last post (Iki Jowo), this is a fairly common occurrence for Jawa. The influence of past cultures that once dominated the area remain and are mixed and...

Well this one is a keris! :D
And yes, unusual dress for sure, at least the hilt.
My general feeling is that this keris and hilt got a bit of a re-design somewhere along the way. I don't think this...

Another interesting item. The hilt has a simplistic beauty. But again, as Alan has pointed out, not a keris. :(
