Antique Kris Keris Patrem Naga Magic Djimat Amulet Dagger Charm Tribal Dukun For Sale

Antique Kris Keris Patrem Naga Magic Djimat Amulet Dagger Charm Tribal Dukun

Old naga kris keris patrem fromJava Indonesian keris (kris) with waves and serpent/dragon in the blade. I'm selling a collection of old Indonesia goods, mainly weapons and statues. This one was labelled "Javaanse naga kris patrem". Thiskris is smaller then a usual kris.


For patrem I found:...about the Smaller Keris the Javanese call it as "patrem". So small, that people often call the patrem as "keris for women". The size is about -- in Javanese word: "sekilan".

Or the size of spreading fingers, from thumb to the other end of the finger (I miss my English word for my smallest finger)... The patrem's dhapur is usually very simple: straight and no much details (ricikan). Mostly, dhapur "brojol", "tilamupih", "tilamsari". But sometimes "naga" motives too.
.... the form is still Majapahit patrem.....In Javanese villages, dhukun (practitioners) also use patrem, or even smaller than patrem (amulet-keris). It is more difficult to find good patrems than good kerises. And the specific accessories for patrem, are also rare. Old patrem's hilts, are seldom. And also the I found: The blade or bilah in Malay, has three basic characteristics: Perabot, Dapor and Pamor

These sculptured or chiseled features found at the bottom half of the blade are called Perabot. In a well made Kris, these features are considerably intricate and some are with animals or human figures. They combine with other features of the blade to create a complex system of blade categorization.

Aside from these distinctive base features, the Keris comes in all shapes and sizes imaginable. The Indonesian term for the shape of the blade is Dapor. At last count, there are about 145 listed and identified Dapor (Groneman, in his writing (1910), describes 118 types, 40 of which are straight and 78 wavy. Sir Stamford Raffles (1817) says the varieties exceed 100 and provide illustrations for 41 common types). This doesn't include the variations in-between. While the conventional view of a Keris is that it is wavy, straight blades abound and actually outnumber the wavy blades by about two to one. The waves or "luk" are always odd in number when counted in the traditional way; the first luk starts above the picetan, and the second on the alternate side of the blade and on and on till the tip, although it is sometimes difficult to distinguish the last luk. Some of the common dapur are Sempana (7 luk) or Sangkelat (13 luk). Some blades have a lion (singa), snake or naga, or a praying man (pendita) instead of having a kembang kacang. The names of the dapur of these blades follow the motive they have like Singabarong or NagasasraThis is a kris / keris (Indonesian traditional dagger) in a wooden scabbard that is made out of 1 piece of wood.


This kris is in total 22cm and . The length of the blade only: 14 cm.
