Hello everyone,
Does anybody know the name of the ukiran (hilt) of this keris? Or can someone tell me the mystical powers?
Thanks!

Hello Maurits,

Hilts like this are supposed to exhibit naturally grown shapes - as such these are a gift of nature/god and of possible talismanic value. For more discussions, search for "gana"...

I somewhat doubt that the size and shape of this example vibes well with the scabbard from an orang Jawa perspective though.

Best wishes,
Kai
