Question for Philipine players

Question for Philipine players
Got question about blade for Phinoy players.
Is there any custom blade maker there? Huh I've got an associate of mine who need made-to-order utility blade, and I recommended him for local made custom blade because importing any custom made from Formerly Great USA gonna be expensive and unlikely to fare well within local environment.

Thanks beforehand Smile

Depending on where he/she is in the country. There are a lot of blade smiths around Batangas and some in nearby provinces like Laguna. The quality ranges from totally crap to really good. Price range are also just as varied.

Thanks for responding my inquiry Smile
This associate of mine live on Manila City but he also setup somewhere around Mingan Mountain (more like a hill then actual mountain though)

Do you know any good bladesmith around those part? Huh Could you send me the contact info of that good bladesmith you know of? Huh

If I didn't know better i'd have thought this was a bot question.

It's just a utility jungle machete, but need to be made from well made (proper heat tampering) 5160 Spring Steel.

The problem is, this friend of mine (who is a Murica) doesn't have the slightest clue on using typical South East Asia curvy utility blade, and so far industrial made machete usually (and stupidly) were mostly made from High Carbon Steel Dodgy So I recommended him to get custom made from 5160 Spring Steel (good balance between corrosion resistance, toughness, and hardness)

For what use is it? Jungle exploring? Or a daily use about cutting stuff?

Haha! Couldn't help but notice. . Sabres, machetes and kali knives are pretty common sight here in Zamboanga City too, Mindanao Region(Philippines). Especially in the mountains, where children are required to carry one on their sashes to harvest coconuts.

The question is, where to find a good bladesmith there to make custom machetes from 5160 spring steel with proper heat treatment (it's about quality)

I could easily order well made custom blade here (we do have centuries worth of experience & culture in blade making out of space rock), but sending / shipping it to this associate of mine at Manila City would cost more then the cost of making the blade in the first place.
