A fine and rare Moro Kris.
This Moro Kris measures 59.5cms long and has a blade length of 47.5cms.
This Kris has a rare combination of features typically reserved for warriors of some social standing;
The pommel is a very fine and demure ivory type, without loss or damage, crisp features and a nice mellow caramel patina. The grip is classically bound in thick woven twine which offers a sure and comfortable grip.
The blade is quite thick and heavy for its size. Its edges are keen and its surfaces decorated with engraved floral motifs.
A deep fuller runs through the middle of the blade and tapers to a point short of the tip and clear laminated, layers patterning can be seen in the steel surfaces.
A fine and desirable Kris.
