Annotation
Knife with a narrow single-edge metal blade. The knife is fitted in a flat wooden handle. The sheath is sewn from one piece of leather. Sewn to the sheath is a loop of a narrow leather string to suspend the knife on the belt. This type of knife was borrowed from the Orochi and the Nanais, although the skill of using it was at a lower level.
