What is Karambit?
The karambit (as is spelled in the Philippines and in most Western countries
kerambit (as used in both Malaysian and Indonesian variants of Malay), kurambik
or karambiak (both from the Minangkabau language) is a small Southeast Asian
curved knife resembling a claw
The karambit is believed to have originated among the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra where, according to folklore, it was inspired by the claws of tiger. As with most weapons of the region, it was originally an agricultural implement designed to rake roots, gather threshing and plant rice. As it was weaponized, the blade became more curved to maximize cutting potential. Through Indonesia's trade network and close contact with neighboring countries, the karambit was eventually dispersed through what are now Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and the Philippines
