today I have an old Kerambit Minangkabau for the forum members.
Hilt and Scabbard are finely carved from deer antler, the blade is very fine laminated steel.
This Kerambit must be quite old. I know its history since around 1950. It comes from the collection of a dutch collector. He married a german wife arounmd 1950 and he already brought the Kerambit with him. The blade was heavily corroded but well preserved. I think, this Kerambit is from 19th century. Until now I was not able, to find a similar piece in the internet, so maybe it is of some importance.
Hope that the pictures are ok and I can make more of them if wanted.
