Tosanaji Keris
Talismanic
Indonesian Blades
8.  This example is quite robust and carries pejetan indentations, supposedly evidence
that the blade has been pinched between the maker's fingers when hot and soft.
Because of the orientation of the indentations  in this particular blade this belief is likely
to be so for this blade. The form is not particularly keris-like, but the lines indicating
the gonjo and gandik provide evidence that this is intended as a keris. The area of the
gandik and gonjo have been left unworked, and with an "off the anvil" finish.
Construction uses mixed material with some contrast, but no steel core. The handle has
been forged from the same billet as the blade.
