my 3rd blade for sharing.

The first picture shows a newly commissioned Antipolo binakuko (sinanbartolome). This is called the 'matandang binakuko'blade profile- meaning, the standard, old profile of this bolo type. Blade is 16 inches long.

The one at the botom is a newly-acquired 'matandang binakuko.' Blade is 12.5 inches long.

There is a maker mark on the blade, which, suggests that this blade was made by Mr. Catalino Cahanap- the one who taught bladesmithing to a renowned bladesmith, Ka Botog, and a Mr. Tokang Leis.

This piece of info was relayed to me by a bladesmith in Antipolo currently restoring this lovely bolo.
