The blade of this Knife (Mitmor) by Luang Phor Derm is made of melted iron from the nails of coffins after cremation.
The knife will easily penetrate into any magically invulnerable person, and the wound it creates is incurable, the victim will eventually die of the wound irrespective of its size. His knives now have an age in excess of 70 yrs.

Buk Sek - Ceremonial Sanctrification
The word buk-sek means "arousing the potency of an object by means of incantations or spells". This includes am extremely large class of amulets and charms and the charmed objects themselves can take many forms.
In Thai a magical spell is called wet-mon or khatha-akhom, these words are used inerchangeably by magical practitioners. The words are synonomous with the Pali and Sanskrit words (in order) Veda, Mantra, Gatha,and Agama.
The Vedas are the sacred scriptures of India and the word Wet means a form of words believed to have magical powers, i.e. a spell.
Mantra in Thai is pronounced Mon and also means spell. The difference between Wet and Mon is that the Wet spells are used in Brahminist rites while Mon spells are a part of popular Buddhism. Normally, however, the terms are used interchangeably.
There is also a type of spell known as Mon Maha Ongkan, the Mantra of the Great Om. This is peculiarly Thai and consists of purely Thai words or Thaiwords mixed with corrupt Pali words. The words are often obscene or unacceptable in daily use, this perhaps gives them their power when used magically.
When inscribing spells on an object or tattooing spells on the body it is normal practice to use the Khmer writing system although numbers are written in Thai. This is because in ancient times the Buddhist scriptures were inscribed on palm leaves using Khom or Khmer characters. This has given the Khmer characters an aura of sacredness.
To arouse the magical potential of any artificial object other than a Buddha image the object must pass through the processes of Pluk-sek. This involves chanting spells, inscribing magical formulae on the object, or engraving magical squares or circles.
There are an enormous number of objects in this class of which the best known are Palad Khik, Mit Mor and Bia Gae.
