A very fine and rare Keirs blade.

The Keris blade measures 65cms long including the tang/pesi.
The blade is just under 60cms long.
Although covered in a dark patina to much of the blades surface, there are clearly seen cartouches to both sides of the blade in front of the fuller. Between the cartouche and the tip, there appears to be well worn Arabic inscriptions.
The blade is one of the thinnest but sturdiest types I have seen, a tribute to the talents of the manufacturer.
The edges are fully razor sharp the entire length.(br)The blade surfaces have beneath the patina a very clear Turkish Wootz type pattern. It is very possible that this is an early recycled Islamic sword blade.
This blade should be handled with absolute care.

A very rare Keris Panjang.
