Indonesia. Hand crafted. The kris or keris is a prized asymmetrical dagger most strongly associated with the culture of Indonesia, but also indigenous to Malaysia, Thailand, Brunei and Singapore. It is known as kalis in the southern Philippines. The kris is famous for its distinctive wavy blade, although many have straight blades as well. Both a weapon and spiritual object, kris are often considered to have an essence or presence of magical powers—sometimes good and sometimes bad. These knives must be stored in a special box that represents the power of its knife.
