Story Behind The Name

The Kris or Keris is an asymmetrical dagger mostly strongly associated with the culture of Indonesia, but also indigenous to Malaysia, Thiland and other Asian Countries. The Kris is famous for its distinctive wavy blade. A Kris is oftern consdiered to have an essense or presence, with some blades possession good luck and others possessing bad.

Kris history is generally traced through the study of carvings and bas-relief panels found in Southeast Asia. It is widely believed by archaeologists that the earliest Kris prototype can be traced to Dong Son in Vietnam circa 300BC. From there, the design would have been brought into present-day Malaysia by Cham migrants who made their way into the Malay Peninsula twenty centuries ago. Another theory is that the Kris was based on daggers from India.
