Fitted with a wavy blade, measuring 14 3/4” long and 4” wide at the base, with very deep full coverage engraving, showing an assortment of tribal designs surrounding a crowned serpent, with it’s tail on the tip of the blade, running down to the guard and the head hooking back up a short distance. Carved bone pistol grip hilt, carved in the shape of a seated man, with a wire and imitation gemstone accented gold washed collar. With a carved bone sheath, showing a “cobbled” pattern along the sides and floral arrangements on the large throat.

Oh man, the Philippines too?

It’s just that the Indonesian blogosphere is all mad at Malaysians for “stealing” their culture — which is the sort of thing that flares up every couple of years — and no one wants to admit that some of these cultural elements are spread around the region with no regard to national boundaries.

But still. These are Sulu keris, you think?
