A collection of traditional Indonesian and Malay daggers, called kris, is in the bar; one of the blades measures 47 centimeters long.
They are symbolized to people's minds in general by the dagger called a kris, and by the peculiar form of frenzy which has given rise to the phrase "running amuck."
Next to his Koran the kris is the most sacred thing the Malay possesses.
The maker of the kris is a person of importance among the Malays, and ofttimes he is made by his grateful Rajah a Dato, or Lord, for his skill.
The kris is the Malay's national weapon that everyone wears.
Soon after they were passing great heavy-looking junks with their Celestial crews, or light Malay prahus with their swarthy, coffee-coloured sailors in tartan skirts, in whose folds at the waist the formidable wavy dagger known as a kris was worn, the handle, like the butt of a pistol in form, carefully covered by the silk or cotton sarong to indicate peace.
