A very rare 9 luk Chieftan Bugus Keris.

In the sheath this Keris is 41cms long. Out it is 40cms long with a blade length of 33cms.
The blade is a thick well shaped type with bold features and the blade faces show a very fine pamor surface.
The sheath is very broad with the stem being just short of 6cms across and the upper section 17cms wide and 10cms tall.
There are very fine contrasting floral designs seen on both sides of the sheath.
The hilt is crudely repaired and is without a mendak and is glued to the tang.
A few knocks and bumps and very minor losses as it expected with age.

A very rare and seldom seen Malay Keris of very fine proportions.
