Keris 12 A Balinese keris with a 7 wave blade bearing pamor Wos Wutah executed in
the high contrast material associated with Balinese keris. The garap (workmanship)
has been flawlessly executed, resulting in a textbook example of the classical Balinese
The kekandikan wrongko is original to the blade and is neatly carved from dark kayu
pelet bearing the sampir motif.
The old bebondolan danganan (hilt) is from kayu pelet with the mbatok motif on its
face, and the garit macan motif on its reverse. An old wewer set with pastes is fitted,
this is the original wewer fitted to this keris when it was purchased, but I am prepared
to change it if the purchaser does not like it.
This keris was acquired from a local Australian collection in the 1960's. It is a good
quality keris and representative of the archetypal Balinese keris
