A fine and rare example of a keris from the northern Malaysian peninsular regions of Terrenganu or Kelantan. Handle in the jawa demam form is made of fosslized mammtoh molar, or garham gajah in Malay. Top sheath is made of very well selected kemuning woods with flashing grains with the bottom stem made of angsena woods with tigerï¿½s stripe grains, and a thick brass ferrule or pendoko completes fittings.
Very sturdy blade with 5 meandering waves or luks, a prominent spine and deep double fullers, has the base features or perabots very well executed with the typical malela features.
Blade is pattern welded but using higher carbon metals without contrasting nickel pamor lines. The stress on practicality from region is shown from the temper mark, or nyepuhan, which is seen from the darker shades at the edges that extend till the base of the blade.
