A good Miit Mhor is an essential tool to any magician as they are used to bind, cut, seal, break or banish ghosts, and this one is a beautiful old one. It is not necessary to know the maker and when we do, if it is old it adds excessive value, taking it out of our reach and besides, once you are taught how to make the knife yours it matters little.
I would estimate that this is over 20+ years old and the blade is impressed with the Lanna script, a Yant Na at the base on one side and a Buddha at the base on the other. Both sides of the knife have scripting of fabulous quality that can only be done in this way while the knife is being forged. The top quality bindings on the knife and scabbard are in both brass and low grade silver and this is a well used knife that bulges in the middle. A top quality item that has been well used and cared for. There is also a ritual for this knife to make it yours, which I will explain to the buyer.
The knife measures 10" and is ready to use, no kata is necessary for this. Miit Mhor are an essential tool for any magician and this is a very good one.
