Kris – brief basic elements (taken from “La forgiatura della lama del Kris” by Sandro Forgiarini)

In 2005, UNESCO declared the kris a world heritage site. Not just a symbol of Indonesia, a weapon that has always been part of the daily life of Indonesians and some neighboring countries, but an object that deserves universal recognition due to its tradition and symbolism.

The kris is not just an object or a weapon, it is much more. It is the identity card of the owner, it indicates his personality and his social status, it was used in peace and war, in the most important ceremonies of life, it was handed down from father to son as the most precious possession of the family.
