This is one of the simplistic yet artistic utilitarian knives I have had to date, carved entirely from antler and tapering to the top which features most of leaf like patterns in a crown like formation. Stunningly unique and elegant in flow these type knives commonly know as "pisau raut" are usually on the side of mandau scabbards and is used for carving, cutting betel nut, and splitting rattan.
