The Indonesian populous used knives to rake roots, gather threshing and plant rice. Resembling a tiger’s claw, many other nations saw value in the knife, resulting in greater adopting in surrounding regions.
Unlike within the army, peasantry used Karambit knives for self-defense. Its shape made it be undetectable by the opponent, with edges shaped to bypass swords and other blades. Due to effective defense proposition, Western countries took interest in the knife, leading towards is planetary popularity.
There are many use cases for Karambit knives, due to their unique tiger claw shape. Most people nowadays use it for construction works or for survival. Its blades would cut materials that would otherwise be hard to reach. Additionally, there are few tactical Karambit knives, with a goal of making your home repair works much less daunting.
However, its self-defense value never decreased, especially if materials are of high quality. The manufacturers mostly design their products as to provide sleek design, rather than lethality.
