Knife with sheath (Kuttiwang)

L. handle: 9cm; Cutting edge: 6cm; small working knife with one-sided cutting edge. The iron blade with a slightly curved back and a curved, but straight edge at the tip is thorn in the handle made of light wood and secured by a braided rattan ring. The blade is at an angle to the handle. The scabbard consists of a flat wooden board in which the shape of the blade and the handle are sunk; the knife rests here and is held in place by a braided rattan ring that is wrapped around the sheath - roughly in the middle.
