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 very special 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 30+ years old, meaning that it has come from before there was any interest in the Thai practices from the outside world. The blade is impressed with a twin coiling Naga design and has Thai script. The other side has two lines of script, which is almost cuniform in nature and is unreadable to me as well as a triangular Yant at the base. The top quality bindings on the knife and scabbard are in both brass and low grade silver and this is a well used knife. A top quality item that has been well cared for and the blade was greased when I bought it. There is also a ritual for this knife to make it yours, which I will explain to the buyer.
The knife measures 12" 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.
