The caste of "Pande" are the master Balinese craftsmen dedicated to creating the traditional daggers known as keris. With meticulous attention to detail, these artisans transform raw materials into works of art, infusing each keris with profound cultural and symbolic meaning.


Using a combination of ancient techniques and modern craftsmanship, the Pande select the finest materials and shape them into unique designs, passed down through generations. The keris is not just a weapon, but also a symbol of protection and a connection to Balinese spirituality.


Through their work, the Pande keep the Balinese tradition alive and ensure that the art of keris-making continues to thrive, preserving the island's rich cultural heritage for future generations.
