    The karambit or kerambit is a small Southeast Asian hand-held, curved knife originating in Indonesia. The karambit spelling is mostly used in the Philippines. In Western literature it is occasionally misspelled as "korambit"

    I've seen both used interchangably, guess it really depends on where you live.

    Nice to see that you are back on the forum again.

    I can see how that style of knife would fit with a escrima / kali style of fighting. Running it over or under in circular motions on peoples outstretched punching arms. Short, fast backhanded stabbing, etc...

    Nice!! Kerambit is in Indonesian/Malay spelling whereas Karambit is in Philippines tagalog spelling. The languages are slightly different therefore the spelling came up different when written in English.

    Nice!!! Karambit is the spelling that I'm use to. I have a few karambit inspired blades that I just love, shown in the pic below. I'll be getting more to add to the collection sooner or later!
