Hello Gav,

I must have been unclear, sorry! I wanted to express that I have some keris blades that I had a sheath fitted to them by a restorer. Similar to what happened with your keris shown.

Hello Gav,

I own several keris where I have let a wood restorer do similar "repairs" to fit a sarung for a blade, I thought it's worth getting a proper sarung!

Hello Alan,

Thank you for chime in and for your explanation! Frankly said I was a collector like you described in your last passage and changed my mind in the last few years.

Hello Gav and David,

Of course I agree with you and I know how the seat from the blade inside the scabbard looks normally (like shown by Gav in several examples), especially by Malay keris. But I...

Hello Gav,

Another option I had reservations about but like always I can be very wrong! ;)

Hello Kai,

Hello David,

Sraits(?), Malay(?), need your opinion

Hello dear members,
