Keris Bali Lurus Tulang Tebal Ulu Kendit.

Keris Bali Lurus Tulang Tebal Ulu Kendit – Another very good example of a keris from the island of Bali. Fittings in the gayaman Bali forms and are made from well selected pelet woods with natural contrasting grains that occurs due to fungal attacks. The handle is having a singular ring grain along the middle, is rare, and is called pelet kendit. A silver ferrule or mendak with semi precious stones insertions completes fittings.

Very long and exceptionally sturdy blade, having a thick prominent spine and very well executed and deep base features or perabots.

Pamor patterns are very condense and are arranged in the mlumah technique of the kulit semangko or melon’s skin variations, which is said to enhance the owner’s popularity.

Condition: Very g
ood condition
.

Age:  Krises are traditionally made without any date stampings or engravings of the makers' name. Although a kris smith or "empu" has his own styles configured together with the dapor and especially the ganjar (cross piece). Obvious age wear and tear, usage, familiarity with forms, motifs and designs, origin and history, mediums and materials used are our guidelines in determining an approximate age. This particular piece, from our experience and knowledge, should go back to the late 19th century.

Length of blade: 18.5".   Overall length: 27".
