Ka wait tyngkrong ka dei ka wait kaba pyndait da ki artylli ki kjat ha lyngkdong kum ban kyrshan haba ot doh. Ngi ju shong ha ka mula ne ha ka lyngknot haba ngi ot doh ha ka wait tyngkrong. (from Rev. Dr. Ïarington Kharkongor)

"Ka wait tyngkrong" is a large Khasi traditional kitchen knife which stands on two legs at a 45 degree angle that is used to cut meat. One sits on a mula (traditional woven stool) or lyngknot (low wooden stool) to cut meat on the wait tyngkrong.

Ka Wait Tyngkrong" is a very handy large bladed kitchen knife used by Khasis and Pnars. We can sit comfortably and cut meat accordingly dropping the pieces into a large aluminium/ steel dabor (a large aluminium/steel basin).
