Keris Malela has two gorges on both sides of the surface with a very artistic appearance and distinctive ornament (resembles the centre of the flower). Our ranges of Nusantara weapons are made by famous and respective craftsmen from the East Coast of Malaysia, Peninsular Malaysia, and Pattani (Southern Thailand). Their expertise and artistic work in producing Nusantara weapons are well-known worldwide. It has been passed down from a generation to another generation.

To produce excellent quality kris, our craftsmen will firstly need to liquefy a mixture of selected metal taken from the kris, spear, hatchet, and cetar (also known as pamor).

The craftsmen then will weld the pamor repeteadly till traces of impurities are removed from the blade which eventually lead to a strong kris. Once this is done, the craftsmen will finally add in a secret tradition ritual to the kris.
