    Ganjah Menumpang

    How common is ganja menumpang? I understand this to be the ganjah of a kris being forged in one piece with the blade. I recently purchased a kris which seems to have a ganjah menumpang, the border being a very finely forged line between the pieces. There is no trace of the key to lock the ganjah to the tang.
    The kris is also without easily visible pamor, and I intend to clean it and renew the finish, but I am curious about this particular type of kris design. I purchased the kris as
    a Bali keris, which I thought would have had a very smooth finish with bright silver lines in the pamor, so I am trying to ascertain how to finish this
    kris, with arsenic and lime or just an acid wash.
