The Golok Perak is another traditional Malaysian design that has withstood centuries. Perak is one of the States in Malaysia and it is beleived this design originated from that state. This blade shape is also known as Golok Daun Buluh ( bamboo leaf golok ) as the shape of the Golok is heavily influenced by the bamboo leaf. Have a look below and note the similarities.
The Golok Perak is a common type of Golok and you can find different weights and lengths. Some are made into small knives for kitchen use , some slightly bigger ones for cleaning game and the biggest are for jungle use. It was a common sight to see a golok or pisau daun buluh in the kitchen before the introduction of stainless steel knives.
