    Valladolid,Negros knife/tari maker?

    Who is the best knife/tari maker from Valladolid nowadays?
    I heard from way back that most of the famous bigtime breeders in the Philippines have their knife/tari are custom made at Valladolid.

    Pre, try PM Jeg-26. I'm sure he knows where in Valladolid are the good knife-makers since he lives near that place.

    Ask Maning he might throw a few names. It is true though that the best knifeman are from Valladolid. Most of them are respected knifeman up to now. They are like household names way back then.

    Maning facilitated my 2 dozen knives made in 'Dolid, the grandsons of Palo' the original tari maker for decades up to the '80s. They were excellent knives. I'm still using them up to now.

    Valladolid tari maker

    I am curious about Palo I heard his family name is Baylon.
    My grandpa came from barrio palaka,valladolid but they migrated
    to mindanao after ww2 with the same family name my grandpa served as a soldier with the Phil.scout.
    we don't know anything about our relatives at valladolid hope to visit the places while searching for the best knife,maker someday.
    I'll try to contact Maning thanks guys.
    My dad told me it's the "subo" of valladolid knife is far superior than the rest.
    My dAd oWn a dozen valladolid knife from valladolid given by his friend.

    You're correct my friend, Boy Vega is one if not the best gaff maker in RP. You can check his work at:

    http://www.gaffsmaker.com

    His website is very cool with great soundtrack too

    I'm due to send payment for a couple of his tare.

    I hope this helps. Cheers

    I visited Boy Vega's manufacturing factory in Consojong,Cebu in my last visit to the Philippines. I was very impressed how professional it is run and using hi tech equipment. I have bought
    7 dozens of tare in a period of 16 months. I am very very please with them. The sizes are very accurate within 1/32 of an inch. I highly recommend BOY VEGA of Cebu.......the Pioneer in Tare making in CEBU.

    about Boy Vega

    I heard he is in jail for drug and gun related charges.
    I have 6 malaysian and 6 pakpak langaw from Boy Vega.
    The craftsmanship is excellent but I found out that the Malaysian design is much better than the pakpak langaw.
    My Boy Vega's knife is aligned at 1 o'clock and medium point.
    The only advantages off ordering Knife from Cebu is they have
    the good selection of steel available scrap and steel blanks in the island from various manufacturing companies.
    But with the best steel provided to the Valladolid knife makers
    I have no doubt they are more experiences on making knifes especially when it comes to tempering steel and excellent craftmanship.
    I hope that they have still using the old die for precise alignment.

    Tio Palo Aguillon's home is near the big Church.By his age he may have passed on already. His son Allen aka Digul may still be affiliated with the Plazas-the late DO Plaza was close to the family.

    Thumbs up Re: Valladolid,Negros knife/tari maker?

    Brothers Palo, Marcelino, Domingo, Leon and Salvador died a couple years ago... Their expertise in making the Filipino long knives might be equalled but will never be passed..They were the grandmasters, the supremo in knife making during their time.. I knew them for more than two decades..Their legacy is still carried by their nephews and sons, like Itchoy, Joseph, Bandolon and Joey..Most of the knives I use today are made by these young guns..

    BRO. Maning

    I 've seen how they amazingly craft those "Bulangs" and yeah, it's craftsmanship alright. No hi-tech welding machines. Hand crafted I should say using blow torches and "Borax" to weld.

    I believe we had corresponded before Re: Manong F Yulo - Hinigaran PM me if u may
