    why don't go to java (especialy in central java or yogyakarta) indonesia to learn how to make a kriss from a mpu, mpu is the blacksmith that specialized make a kriss. i think your kriss is to big to call a degger i think it's more look like a sword than a degger.

    For those who arent asian, the Kris was a dagger with a wavy edged blade that snapped of when you stabbed it in something, leaving the handle. Also, the custom was that a person would decorate the knife as richly as he could, so he could exchange it to get him out with ransom.

    @7:10 Flamberge, dude. It's called a flamberge :)
    A zweihander literally translates as a two-hander. The first time you hear about zweihanders is, I think, in the late 15th century, and it refers to a larger and heavier longsword capable of breaking through pike formations and ripping riders off horses.
