In this episode of Explore with Swim, Hunter McGrady visits a Balinese traditional weapon maker named Jro Pande Subrata. Jro Pande Subrata and his wife walk Hunter through the process of making a traditional Keris. A Keris looks like  dagger, however it is more of a spiritual totem than an actual weapon made to inflict harm. Jro Pande makes the weapon with extreme intention the whole time, praying over the Keris to infuse it with positivity and good energy for Hunter.
