Keris Sajen - keris Majapahit - 18th century or older!
Ancient straight blade with pamor and gandariras type. Mendak forming a whole with the blade as it should (metok). You do not come across this kind of 'primal kerisses' that often. They are considered to be a talisman and are rare. Size: 21 cm.

information regarding this type of inspiring kerisses:

Rather than a weapon, Keris Sajen is an amulet.
Primitive-looking keris, made of roughly forged welded iron, the hilt is one piece with the blade, so there is no separate ganja. The shape of the hilt represents a squatting or a standing human figure. Pamor is typically Adeg or Sanak.
This type of keris is also known as Majapahit keris, linking them to the Hindu dynasty which ruled Java and part of the neighbouring islands during the 14th-15th cent. but this dating is disputed by the Indonesian experts as the kerisses from the Majapahit period are precious and of high quality, contrary to the simple design of the keris sajen. Another theory links the origin of the keris sajen to the bronze daggers found in Dong-Son (Vietnamese village), where an advanced civilization developed during the 3rd century B.C.

    Het item was zoals op de foto; geen onaangename verassingen. Verder vond ik de wijze waarop het item was ingepakt heel positief. Ook de snelheid waarop het geleverd werd ben ik zeer over te spreken.

    Jammer dat er op de foto's, noch in de beschrijving extra duidelijk gemaakt werd dat er een kleine braam op het lemmet zit.

    Een braam en daar kom je nu 6 weken na aankoop mee?In de tussentijd gevallen misschien? Bij mijn beste weten is daar geen sprake van geweest. Uiteraard had ik daar anders melding van gemaakt.
