Keris 25   An old Javanese keris of dhapur Kebo Dengen Luk 9, it is classifiable
as Tuban, the ricikan are vestigal but sufficient to permit identification of the
dhapur. Kebo Dengen is a very scarce dhapur, and one of the apparent age of this
one on offer is even more scarce.

The wrongko is finely carved of Javanese sandalwood and in the Surakarta
Sandang Walikat style.

The hilt is Surakarta sandang walikat in reddish kayu sawo and it is fitted with a
silvered lung wideng mendak.

This is a very old keris of a scarce form, I acquired it in Surakarta during the
1970's.

Blade length   11" (280mm)     overall length   16.75" (425mm)
