Hullo everybody!

Just curious to know what anyone's first impression of the blade is on seeing this picture.

Best,

Hello Amuk,
7 luks, the dapur is outside Central Java pakem, flaring ganja, pamor Buntel Mayit/ Mayat, it seems to have some age, from East Java/ Madura? Other opinions will be welcome
Best regards

There is not really a lot that can be said from this photograph, now is there?
I agree that it is Buntel Mayat, i agree that the workmanship is on the lower end of the scale. I wouldn't even begin to go any further based on this image. Even when i shopped it up a bit to reveal a bit more detail i still wouldn't comment too much more.
What is it you really want to know about this keris Amuk? Direct questions usually lead to direct answers...

Yeah, I agree with David, the only question in my mind about this blade is whether it has some age (traces of wear and pits on the core) or was artificially aged.
