Kris

A kalis (Baybayin: or ; Abecedario: cáli, cális) is a type of double-edged Filipino sword, often with a "wavy" section, similar to a kris. It is believed that the predecessor of the kalis, the keris, first appeared in the 13th century, originally from the island of Java in Indonesia.
Two notable exceptions are the Philippines where it is usually called kalis or kris (although the Filipino kalis is a sword, rather than a dagger), and Thailand where it is always spelled kris and pronounced either as kris or krit.
