Keris Panjang: Execution Keris from Sumatra (Indonesia).
This exceptionally long Keris has a 3 luk blade and is called Jangkung. The Kris has a clear pamor (damask-like pattern). This is obtained by the technique of layering different types of iron by the Empu (traditional keris blacksmith).
A Keris Panjang is longer than a normal Keris and was previously used for executions by the Sumatran court. The Keris was stabbed through the shoulder to the heart.
The upholstery (sheath and grip) of this Keris is particularly beautiful and very rare with beautiful motifs and a writing on the warangka (barge).
The length of the blade is 58 cm, the length of the entire keris is 69 cm.
