Size: 17cm

A letter opener, in the form of the quintessential wavy-bladed keris, in satin finish pewter.

The keris is a dagger unique to the Malay cultures of Southeast Asia, with renderings depicting the weapon dating to 825 CE. Asymmetry is this ancient weapon’s distinguishing feature and, although different styles exist, it is the wavy blade that is instantly recognisable. Today, the keris is a potent symbol of the history and culture of the Malay world.
