Default binakuko bolo

Hi,

My father and I went to Morong days ago to pick up a bolo made by a local artisan there. Showed him the blade, which is supposedly, from Binangonan. Yes, that style is Binangonan -but we also forge the same style here.

Since Binangonan and Morong are adjacent to each other, it may not be a surprise that the same 'type' of blade is forged on either areas.

The only way, my artisan says, to determine where the blade is forged is to know the name of the bladesmith, hence, the provenance of the blade.
