Bugis Keris

A good older blade of the typical Bugis broader shape with sculptural flutes and subtle fine pamor (laminate pattern in blade) made of iron and nickel. The hardwood hilt has nice patina and some old cracks.

Keris daggers are widespread thoughout the greater Malay and Indonesia cultural world. The blades are made of iron and nickel (often of meteoric origin) and are highly valued as powerful talismans. The supernatural powers associated with them span everything imaginable: attracting wealth, power, luck, influence, love; warding off black magic, jealousy, fire, poison, violence, lightning strikes; or making one a good dancer, able diplomat or soldier. Very old keris blades of known provenance can be extremely costly. Blacksmiths who are expert in forging keris are respected and known for their mystic powers.
