The Kris:

Mystic Weapon of the Malay World

---

Edward Frey

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. Very Good Hardback. Second Edition Reprint of the 1988 edition 74 pages. Please see the scan of the contents page for further details
