Even though the Kris is most commonly associated with Indonesian culture, it is also a traditional dagger or sword from Thailand, Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore. Both men and women wore a kris although a womans kris would be smaller. The were not just a ceremonial dagger either - the were much more than that.
They symbolised social status and wealth. They were handed down from one generation to another and a man was considered naked if he ventired into public without his kris.
The kris is also known as a kelis, keris, cryse, kriss, criss, and creese.
