    About long knife design, alignment and setting?

    Please share you're observation about the LK that you're using.
    About mine they're Malaysian and Pakpak langaw design.
    1'o clock alignment and medium point.
    The Malaysian is somehow have good results,about the pakpak langaw I've experiences losing my fowl coz they tend to hang on the opponents body and ended up being hit by an opponents blow.
    I think this is only for mature hard hitter cocks.
    Right now I'm looking for the old setting alignment 12'o clock
    with old roundback blade design or with a malaysian blade medium point-semi high point.
    The knife alighnment that I'm looking is called Hinamtak in our provinces.The curvature of the blade can be compared to a semi high point gaff bayonet.
    My fowl are medium to high breaker.Hope that I can find a knifemaker with an old die to make my knife.

    canadian kelso:

    i suggest that once you are under “chicken talk”, go to “search chicken talk” and type knife design, knife alignment, or knife setting, and you would find a lot of valuable information about this topic. good luck.

    Hi Banderado

    That's a very cool design a roundback malaysian cross.
    What kind of steel is that?
    Maybe if you can weld that blade on a fork it might work great.
    Goodluck that's a new innovation.
    Apply for a patent right away.lol

    canadiankelso,


    I prefer using Diamond back or semi's than Malaysian stlye fork knives not to say that Malaysian stlye is not good,but IMHO the Diamond back fork knives create bigger,deeper and devasting wounds and kill faster. I also like the old style round back fork knives but people say it obselete,but those kill fast too.I like to set the aim at 12:30 and the medium point. High point is a different aim, I aim the point to the inside of the knee of the left leg.For my own roosters I'll use the Diamond back fork knives and when I'm tying for friends and relatives I'll use the Malaysian stlye. TO EACH HIS OWN!!!

    dogmancarter,

    it' because my friends,relatives and other people who want me to tie the knife for them want the Malaysian style fork knives instead of the diamond back or old round back styles.They say that the Malaysian style looks more wicked and deadlier.It's not to say that I don't want the best for their roosters, it's a matter of preference by the owners! In my opinion the diamond back fork knives are better than the Malaysians!!I'm an honest gaffer! Even if there is no money involved!(fight for fun) I want the rooster that I've gafffed to kill the other rooster!I'm not saying the Malaysian style is not good, I just get better results with the diamond back-double edged!

    thanks deadlygaffer and banderado

    Deadlygaffer
    double edge knife is banned in most pit. About the effectiveness of diamond design maybe because of it's
    lightness and can be pulled quickly by the rooster after hitting the opponent.
    About the Roundback design Banderado's Malaysian-roundback cross blade on a fork base could have the potential
    of having the best of the old and new.
    About the 12:30 setting that's what my next set of tari is going to be.

    ...... i agree with you 100%.....actually it can be technically analized though, sort of the reason behind why you get good result ........ it should work best depending on fighting style if given the chance ..... as per my analysis paralysis heheh :hippie:





    bare socket...Wornout malaysian:

    CanadianKelso,



    double-edged knives are not banned in Hawaii,anything goes!, Derbies or Hack fights.It's all up to you what kind of knife you want.




    Banderado,

    very nice knife!!! you what i'm talking about the high-point aim! The top knifemen(gaffers) are using this aim.

    Thumbs up Re: About long knife design, alignment and setting?

    hello guys,

    we, in malaysia especially in sarawak are use to aim our knife at 11.30 o'clock point rather than 12 or 1 or 2 o'clock. we have two types of knife here, 1. is 'sulat' and 2. is cincin/ring or socket. setting is our number 1 priority and then the blade itself. my email is jacklykaok@yahoo.com
