Last April 26, masters of the blade converged for a landmark event that was the first ever XO Philippine Blade Olympics. Gathering skilled blade competitors (also known as Cutters) and knife hobbyists, the event put to test the competitors’ cutting skills and the durability of their blades. Moymoy Casitas, a young welder from Balading, Albay, Rob Jumchai, an artist from Baguio, and Romeo Porlarez of Team Hahn from Bicol emerged as the event’s top blade masters.
