Sword (Kris)

The blade is long, straight and double edged, of flattened lenticular section. The blade expands at the hilt to form a cusped ganja, pierced with five small and one separate large holes on the edge side. At the back is a brass band which extends under the binding of the hilt. The hilt is of wood bond with twisted cord, and has a stylised bird-like pommel.
