A rare Moro Kris with a very rare hilt type.

This example measures 69cms long.
The blade length is 55cms.
The rare silver dressed octagonal hoof type pommel retains a very rare decorative silver butt plate. Within the butt plate is a red coloured cabochon to the centre.
The grip section is made up of joined decorative silver rings.
The blade only retains a single asang asang. The Ganja shows clear forging lines as does the blade.
The blade shows a very clear differential core with blue hardened edges that remain very sharp.

A very rare Kris, possibly Malay influenced.
