Colonized by the Dutch, the East Indies is made up of hundreds of Islands which today we know as Malaysia, Indonesia and Bali. Each island such as Java, Sumatra and Flores made slightly different style kris designs so today there is a large variety for the collectors to choose from.
This particular kris came from the island of FLORES and dates to the very late 18th century. The amazing blades, many with a wave pattern were sometimes created from meteor iron or forged much like Japanese swords.
