Short description: 

This book is dedicated to oplology lovers, avid collectors, and to all those persons fond of arms and weapons. At the same time, this is an essay dedicated to any enthusiast interested in in-depth investigation of the complex and peculiar world of the kris: this dagger typical of the Indo-Malay area cannot be considered just as a weapon in itself but also a unique object rich in deep symbolisms that led to its recognition as a Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2005.
