Mid 18th century - Jó

Bugis keris with the 7 luk pamor kling.
The Dapor (name of this keris) is Sempana (source: De keris, Tammens).
Buginese Kerissen were actually used at the time for fighting by the Buginese (pirates, originally from Sulawesi, scattered throughout the archipelago (especially Sumatra) and Malaysia) over the centuries.

This beautiful keris comes from Celebes (nowadays Sulawesi), Indonesia. Celebes is the origin of the Bugis tribe.

In addition to the typical shape of the blade, the keris has a clear pamor (damask like pattern). This is caused by the technique of forging various types of iron in layers by the Empu (traditional keris blacksmith).

This keris has a pamor named Adeg.
This pamor is known for its good magical properties. The main magical power of Pamor Adeg is to ward off unwanted events, such as epidemics, fire, storm, poisonous animals, spirit appearances etc. Some kerisses with Pamor Adeg are filled with one special force, others with several.
The keris is from the mid 18th century.
Sheath and hilt are of a more recent date than the blade.

The keris has a beautiful wooden sheath only seen with Buginese kerisses, a typical Buginese wooden hilt (stylised bird) with a beautiful Selut (ring / spherical cup).

The length of the blade is 31 cm, the length of the entire keris is 44 cm.
