Lawi Ayam

Lawi Ayam
Lawi ayam is also called kerambit is a short claw shaped dagger. It is designed for an upward ripping movement into the bowel of the victim.

It is also known as kuku ayam or rambai ayam.

The combination of the original design of the tiger’s claw combine with the hand weapons of the ancient characters of the Mahabhrata and the Ramayana – the lawi ayam has evolved into what is known in modern times as kerambit.

It is now recognized internationally as a traditional weapon of Malay self defense, silat.
