deeply embossed with an intricate semen motif is fitted, it has a few very minor bruises.

This keris was acquired during the 1980's from a Javanese collector living in Solo, he had used
Javanese keris oil that was based on coconut oil, and even after 30 years in my possession, this oil
can still be smelt.
