    Late 1800's- Early 1900's, Malayan Native Dagger With Ornate Antique Ivory Or Bone Handle With Hand Forged Acid Wash Blade & Brass Mounted Hardwood Scabbard. Sn 10680 10680

    The kris is a type of dagger, often with a pistol-gripped shaped handle. Traditionally worn as a status symbol and carried by warriors. The kris is characterised by its distinctive wavy blade. The blade is given its characteristic shape by folding different types of metal together and then washing it in acid. Kris were said to be infused with venom during their forging but the method of doing this was a closely guarded secret among blacksmiths. This is an excellent Malayan Kris most likely made in the late 1800's -Early 1900's. It has a beautiful 15 1/2" long acid washed, hand forged Kris blade which incorporates it's ornate barbed design. The handle is beautifully hand crafted from antique Ivory or Bone and has a decorative ferrule. The dagger measures 19 3/4" overall and is complete with it's original hardwood scabbard. The body of the scabbard is wrapped in a thin sheet of brass with a foliate hammered design. Price for this beautiful ethnic piece includes UK delivery. Sn 10680
