The Karambit (sometimes spelled as "Korambit") is an all purpose/utility knife that was carried by the Indonesians since the 11th century, and can still be seen in some provinces throughout their islands. Although this type of knife was introduced in the art of Indonesian Pencak Silat, only a few people knows that it's roots can also be traced in the Martial Arts of Malaysian Bersilat, and Filipino Kali. In the Philippines, the Karambit is called the "Lihok." Pronounced Lee-hok! (sometimes you will see it spelled like this, Lehok or Lijok or Lejok) The word, "Karambit" is the most common word among English speaking people!
It was not meant to be used for combat since Karambit is first and foremost, a tool. It evolved only because of the necessity of the people of these three Asian Countries to protect themselves from foreign invaders.
This razor sharp Karambit is made of high carbon steel called 5160. Each knife was carefully hand forged and heat-treated to 59 to 61 rock tempered scale. This same treatment is used by the Japanese sword makers in tempering the katana.
Just like all steel, high carbon steel will rust if the owner does not give time for care and maintenance of the blade. Simple oiling (thin application only) will keep the Karambits from rusting like hell. Salty water, sweat, blood, and carelessness, will surely darken your blade. But it will not affect the steels performance. It can still kill and go through the human skull. Keep it sharp by using steel rods and stones. Hand sharpening is still the best way to keep your Karambits handsome and happy.

|Certification of Traditional Filipino Blade Authenticity :
"The blades ( Bolos) of different design distributed by Traditional Filipino Weapons, are genuinely designed as purely combat blades made by experts from Bontoc Province in the Far north of Luzon whose family belongs to one of the 8th tribes existing in the Cordilleras today. The design are expertly patterned in the traditional archives of Bolos stored into the natives blade making system now open for the first time by the Forondo families with the purpose to present the Blade culture of the Filipinos as real including the Fighting system of Pekiti-Tirsia inseparably works together in the field of real combat."
I highly recommend you subscribe to the original Filipino bolos for reality and long lasting memory."
Grand Tuhon Leo T. Gaje, Jr

"These are definitely the best quality blades that I have seen on the market today. These blade makers in the Philippines do excellent work. I will definitely let people know about these weapons."
