I handled a Gunting a few years ago and I really didn't like it at all. But then I don't know much about Bram's system, could someone explain how the gunting functions as an impact weapon outside of the normal bottom of the knife, kubotan type usage? (Which the Yojimbo excells at by the way).
From what I understand Gunting entails snapping joints in a scissor like movement to "defang the snake". How does the Gunting knife help accomplish this task?
Also the huge hump over the hole is for opening the blade on someones clothes when you foul up an opening, right (like a wave almost)? Or does it serve some other special function? I can see it might be used to protude between fingers for punching type attacks maybe? Although it doesn't look particularly comfortable, I've seen a few guntings where people have cut the hump off and they looked alot better to me.
