Mystic Weapon of the Malay
The Malay kris (keris) is probably unique among weapons in that it is fairly
useless in combat because of an inherent design fault. Nevertheless for many
Malays it is a symbol of their culture because of its supposed supernatural
powers and place in Malay legend. In this amply illustrated book, Frey not only
looks at the knife's origins and varieties of design but also explains why and
how it came to assume this semi-hallowed status. 98 pages. Please see the scan
