Taming Sari [MALAY:TAH-ming SAH-ree] ("flower shield" or "beautiful shield") is a famous kris in Malay folklore. It is believed to have been wielded by the legendary Malaccan warrior Hang Tuah, and is fabled to grant physical invulnerability to its wielder.
The Kris Taming Sari was said to have been made of 21 different types of metal. The whole of the sampir (upper wooden part) and batang (lower part of the wooden sheath), was covered in gold leaf. It is classified as a keris gabus (sharp) or keris terapang (having a cross-piece or sheath covered with gold).
