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.

Thanks for that info, interesting that Morong has the same style. Fortunately, I know the provenance of the blades- the former owner, and even the panday who had, sadly, already passed away.
