Lovely example in wonderful condition with no damage found. Beautiful workmanship throughout. Two tone blade is extremely attractive and fits into the scabbard like a glove. The wood on handle and scabbard top is warm and healthy with a beautiful wavy grain. There are figures carved into the handle in two separate places. The ferrule has a lovely filigree style and I believe it is silver but I may be wrong...
Nicely done bone inlay tray. I would think that this is from southeast Asia. Good sized example at 47x33cm. There is a fair amount of surface wear due to age as well as missing inlay here and there. I do not repair items but I would think that the missing inlay could be filled in and of course there are always ways to fix surface wear. The wood is a mystery to me being quite dark and having a grain that looks almost like hairs. Pretty work on this piece and priced quite fairly.

Fine example of an antique, circa 1900 Kris knife/dagger. Very impressive workmanship in this attractive knife; See photos for details. I find one chip in the handle and some small denting to the tip end of the scabbard. Both are minor problems and more then reflected in the price.
