Description

This kris has a brown hilt with "rippled" grain to the wood but no carving. The grip is wrapped string with braided bands at the top, middle and bottom. Between the grip and blade is a light gold colored band 1.8 cm wide. The blade is very slightly waved with no decoration. On one side of the top of the blade is a projection with a pattern of holes through it. On the other side is a small projection with extensions of metal. Though the top of the blade is quite rusted, the rest of the blade has only small spots of rust.
