Deutsches Klingenmuseums offers a special treat for the visitors of KNIFE 2020. The big exhibition „Steel and Magic“ shows edged weapons from the Malay Archipelago in all their variety and contexts: metallurgy and craftsmanship, martial arts and the supernatural, and of course a large selection of the famous kris. Not only the museum’s own collection will be shown.
Good connections to IFICAH (International Foundation for Indonesian Culture and Asian Heritage) and important private collectors allowed to select the exhibits from a pool of several thousand pieces. More than one hundred weapons of the highest quality will be shown. Museum entry is free for visitors of KNIFE 2020.
