Indonesian Souvenirs Foreigners Must Buy! | Keris

Keris is a distinctive, asymmetrical dagger from Indonesia. Both a weapon and spiritual object, keris is considered to possess magical powers. The earliest known keris goes back to the tenth century and most probably spread from the island of Java throughout South-East Asia.


Keris blades are usually narrow with a wide asymmetrical base. The sheath is often made from wood, though examples from ivory, even gold, abound. A keris aesthetic value covers the dhapur, the form and design of the blade, with some 40 variants, the pamor, the pattern of metal alloy decoration on the blade, with approximately 120 variants, and tangguh referring to the age and origin of a keris.


A bladesmith makes the blade in layers of different iron ores and meteorite nickel. In high-quality keris blades, the metal is folded dozens or hundreds of times and handled with the utmost precision.
