Let me know what you think.
Very beautiful ben. Then again I've come to expect nothing less. It's really wonderful to be around so many talented artists here such as yourself. Great work. Simple and to the point.
Re: Filipino style bolo
Very nicely done. such clean authentic bolo look with a touch of something else.
I am not familiar with the style of knife you are working towards so can't comment on that side, but I can say that this is a really nice piece with clean flowing proportioned lines - I like it and it looks like it would feel good in the hand.

Good work


PS. I love the poem too
That is a very good work. A bit of a hybrid of the sundang and itak design from the south.
That hilt design is usually used in blades of about 12 inches or less though. The blade from our house bolo was a little over a foot in length and was fitted with the traditional "kamagong" (dark hard-wood) hilt and angled pommel.
Thanks for all the kind words.

Edelizo, Do you have any pictures of bolos of other SE Asian blades?
