    Greetings to you Mr. Gustav.

    I live and work in Jakarta.

    This actually my second customized keris. Both of the kerises were ordered from the same person who worked on the forging process in Madura Island.

    Based on my observation, the visual characteristic of meteorite pamor is that the pamor will have color shade. From the shiny one, white, light grey and dark grey. The shade may located close to each other.

    For your information, in the posting #8 in this link : http://www.swordforum.com/forums/sho...hy-Kris-Dealer , shows some shops that sell keris in Jakarta but the one that I have relatively good relation is the Sienna Craft.

    May be we can meet on a leisure day and visit that store.

    That is a beautiful Kris... I want to get one custom ordered too... I met a great collector at work he has over 250 of them!!
    How long to get a custom one made? could I meet the bladesmith/Kris maker?

    The keris maker is based in Solo, Central Java Province. If he gets an order, he will first meet you in person (I can help to translate the communication between you and him) either going to Solo or he comes to Jakarta.

    After he knows what kind of keris that you want, he will start the forging at his hometown in Madura Island.

    Before that, be sure that you have your own design either for pamor or for the shape of the blade (known as dapur) or both.

    Please contact with me by PM for more information.
