Did you know that the Philippines is famous for it’s swords? It’s true.
Swords are made in many parts of the Philippines. Some of the best swords are made in Tugaya, Lanao del Sur Province right here in Mindanao. I went to Tugaya with Feyma back in 2007, and we had a great time. We saw swords being made right in front of us.
I’m not talking about factories here, I am talking about people making swords in sheds in their back yards. But, these home made swords are not poor quality, even though they are home made. Most of these swords are world class quality! And, they are somewhat costly due to their quality. But, if you go directly to the source, like we did, you can certainly find some real bargains.
Here’s a video report about Philippine sword making, which I found on YouTube. Enjoy!
