Guys we better get the weapons inventory and practice and learning objectives defined for the event. Otherwise we may be accused of using the site for gustatory delights only!
So far we have
Bantonspur with his Peruvian knife/knife settings
jovie with his assortment of Surats, sockets and ....
jun B with his sockets
Tiny with is Golden Socket knives
jailbird to practice tari sa kanan.
Ompong who wants to prove that 21/2 is the best.
Joey with his Godzilla Samurai
Warlord with his Bayong magic Wands!
Who else and what else? Pls post...
Have not heard from the 11/2 inch gang yet? Or the gaff fighters?
This will be a good venue for those interested ;-)
I will check that Peruvian setting some time, havent forgotten your post, and hopefully I can come back for more discussions on alignment and setting. More than the length of the knife, I think this one plus blade design and angle are the critical elements of deadly knives.
The mayahin (with tibak) that I fought against the grey that will return can be fought again at 1.5 inch setting Rebanse!

Ok we will keep on trying to get those official knives used by Glenn Lims' derby. Anyone knows Glenn? Please text, pm, email- it's all for a good cause!
I heard Tonio has awesome orientals - we also hope we can see some of that blood in the sessions. We really would like to know if we need special knives. The spectacular Hamlin kelsil of Competitor did very well with a standard diamond!
You will be pleased to know that the guy who posted the video on peruvian knife setting is from the same region...the explanation on the reference points is very simple and easy to understand. I also tried his way of tying the bidbit and is indeed very easy and neat. The other video using the sapin without the leather boots is also very interesting. I have tried it using a shorter sapin and the result is 2 wind 0 loss... two buckes is all that were needed in both fights...
Just type peruvian knife setting in whatever search engine you are using and you will find the result. The videos were posted my a bicolano named Medrano if I remember it correctly... for me, one of the best and most practical and informative videos on knife tying i have seen...
I hope you can make it on May 5...hahaha, nangiinggit lang sir...
The good thing is the tip on "sakang" roosters.
Oh, btw, because my knives are straight (no natural curve inwards), standard leather boots will need to be adjusted, or I always have to use the smallest pillow (unan) else my alignment will be "out" (labas).
JB has additional tip on putting in the base leather boot (he aligns to the middle toe). It worked well last March 24, but I originally thought it was slightly too low I prefer it to be a bit higher, but again that just depends on how we finally fix the garol too. My garols are slightly narrower than most.
Anyways, if I could only work closer, like in 2009-2010 I was only three hours away in KL so spent a few weekends to fight derbies back then.
I would even suggest, as we are Filipinos and we love our FOOD, to go for a true degustation...we can have different kinds of drinks to go with the different pulutan so for the more adventurous we can try different wines from different regions to go with dinuguan, kinilaw, lechon (wild boar), kare-kare, aarrghhh....balik niyo ako sa Pinas!!
Just want to share fyt video of my warrior and my first try to tie knife in real battle with bet of 11k dhs but my warrior on dehado " lo tres odds" score 3w 1l.
1st fyt win din wala lang video.

I watched the peruvian knife setting. the blade is differently shaped but the setting is exactly the same as what we taught Rodel. :-)
Thats how it would be done if without the moulding - at least for his NORMAL setting. I beg to disagree with him however on the sakang and piki advise. Ask AL Gamecock 96 - he has first hand experience with his bird last time out :-)
have fun everyone!!

BULANG BULANG FINALS ON MAY 5 AT ARANETA
TARI-TARI SESSION MAY 6 ?
Hi Guys, there is a reasonable request to move the Tari-Tari session to SUNDAY- MAY 6.
Reason is that the BulangBulang Finals are scheduled for MAY 5 at the Araneta Coliseum and quite a number of the Tari-tari attendees have entries to the Bulang Bulang. And some are expecting to score 3.5-4 points in the ELIMS and qualify for the Araneta finals.
If ok with everyone, we can move to May 6 and celebrate the championship trophy to be won by one or more of the attendees :-)

But a 1/4 to 3/8" wide hallow grounded knife of that kind(Peruvian) or any kind of the same length should be alright for those kind of birds(pure asils) you're fighting in the long knife. Just my 2 cents.

[quote=jailbird;4074041]Re: Is there a Gamefowl Conditioning Camp (pay) here in Metro Manila Area?
On another note, can I request that you post a photo of the pre-made (finished) garols that you order from Cebu (?). If you can take a shot of the wrist where they slot the blade in and braze it or weld it in. I'd like to know what the gap is. A few years back it was thin because of the design of the blades, they were probably 1.5mm, now we have the thicker diamond type blades what is the gap, 2.5 - 3mm?
Hi Arnold, Joey has the premade garols, there is the finished P100 each and the raw P19 or 29 each, i forget the exact cost.
I havent seen the finished ones from Cebu. I havent had time to order and remit payments - too busy during working hours, but am sure Joey can fill you in.
Hello everyone. I am new to this thread but I know almost everyone here since I previously joined the March 24 session. I am going to bring 1 baldado rooster and spaghetti since this is the only food missing in the list. See you all on May 6. Have a blessed Holy Week. Doc J :-)

is there an online store for stuff you need at a fight?
A good friend or contact will surely not mind sending the stuff you need as long as its legal. Or at least send the stuff that people dont really recognize as illegal - eg strings, tapes, leather boots, etc.
Hope this picture helps, alongside the Apollo High strength steel. Please see the two garols at the bottom for reference, sorry no close up photos. Maybe next time I order.
