Blades from Sabah April 5, 2010Posted by asianpixmen in Miscellaneous.
Sabah across the South China China, in East Malaysia, has some of the finest knife makers in the Land Below the Wind.
Here are just some of the samples that were sold during the Malaysian National Craft Expo held in March 2010.
The beauty lies in the grain of the wood. The blade when unsheath is a work of art that involved long hours of manual labour.
Yes, they are not as precise and as clinical as those made by machines but each hammer blow, each “flaw” detected by the human eye is but another facet of its character and it tells the man behind the blade.
