The hilt is more of a mystery. At first, I believed it was "Orang Tua" (Old Man), which is a typical design for the hilt. After closer examination, I believe it looks more like a monkey. This is very possible since some very early Kris come from India. Many of the early Indian immigrant workers probably brought their kris with them and this very well could have Indian origins.
I found the kris in Kelantan, at an antique shop.
