16-17th Century Keris Dagger/Sword
Item Details
Description
16-17th Century Keris Dagger/Sword This Indonesian ceremonial dagger or Keris is believed to date from the 15- or 1600s based on the style, materials and condition of the steel. The handle made of timoho wood indigenous to Java, appears to be from the 19th century. As the keris is handed down from generation to generation (sometimes over centuries), the wooden handle and scabbard are often replaced with the blade remaining original. Used in cultural ceremonies and traditionally worn as a symbol of status, the Keris is an important cultural item in Indonesian and Malaysian cultures. This particular example is done in the dapur bener (straight blade) style, and was hand forged with alternating laminations of pig iron and nickel-rich iron. As a historic item that is likely 400 years old or more, there is some rust and pitting in parts on the blade. However, the unique patterns in the steel are very visible on the blade and the edges are still quite sharp. Also includes the top guard piece of the scabbard, made of timoho wood like the hilt. Approximate size: 17.5" x 5.5" x 2" Approximate weight: 0.67 lbs
