A fine large and broad Keris.

This keris measures 44cms long and is without a sheath.
The Jawa Demam hilt is timber and expertly carved to reveal very fine grained timber surfaces. The hilt or Hulu stands more erect than the typical Bugis hilts and his crossed arms are somewhat similar to the Jambi style Keris hilt, perhaps an indicator that this is more Sumatran in its origins rather than the Malay peninsula.
The pendokok of hilt cup is of cast tooled brass that displays floral motifs throughout its surfaces.
The broad blade measures near 8cms across the base and then tapers broadly to the tip.
The blades pamor surfaces are very clear and precise and remain free from loss, damage or pitting.

A very large and attractive Keris.
