No other weapon so characterizes the Malay world as the famous kris. Its origins are shrouded in mystery, it is credited with supernatural powers, and it serves as a status symbol for its owner. In this book, a leading expert in Malay weaponry examines the various aspect of the kris legend, discusses its possible origins and salient features, and provides a detailed exposition of the craftsmanship which goes into its manufacture.
