EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]The kris is a type of dagger from the Malayan archipelago. Often with a wavy blade, the kris is used for spiritual means, as well as a weapon, and can often represent good or bad luck.

The word kris (traditionally spelled as "keris") is originally derived from the old Javanese term ngiris which means to slice, wedge or sliver. Other spellings used by European colonists include "cryse", "crise", "criss", "kriss" and "creese".

Originally, a kris is a short, wavy dagger with a small guard. Some types are straight, but one side of the blade is preferred wavy. The kris itself is a famous sparring weapon and also an assassination weapon.
