Tradition and craftsmanship

In Balinese culture, only those born into the exclusive Pande caste may forge the magically charged daggers, called Keris.

This sacred birthright is only one of the factors making the Keris so unique and precious.

In early renderings the Keris already appear on the Borobudur and Prambanan Temples that date back to 850 A.D.

UNESCO titled the daggers a "Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity of Indonesia" in 2005, urging Indonesia to preserve their heritage.


The Pande artisan caste in Bali, exists outside the traditional Hindu caste system.

Guarding their secrets, by strictly following an unwritten law, they preserve their history and religious beliefs on holy Lontar palm leafs.

Ancient techniques were passed from father to son, using handcrafted natural materials such as meteorite, iron, nickel and carbonized steel.

Pande Empu Ketut Mudra is the blacksmith behind our unique collection of knives and weapons. His craftsmanship is as sacred and historic as it is beautiful.
