It is said that the name of the stylus is
'ULKATUVA' used to train a student to write on a palm leaf. Once he is trained he is permitted to use a different type of stylus the 'PANHINDA'
I had previously placed the stylus name as Keynithuth but will recheck that source...
The materials decide what the name of the style of dagger is called ...In the case of Crystal; Gal Mita Pihiya and below a Met museum example..
