The Cutting Competition showcases the craftsmanship of local blade masters. Competitors use locally made blades to test its balance, grip, and sharpness.Also, the event showcased a demo of “Linambay” a local discipline of martial arts in sword fighting that mimics the gestures or actions of a “lambay” or crab.

The blade tests include cutting a pine wood, vertically cutting a straw, horizontally cutting a straw twice, vertically cutting a plastic bottle, cutting a golf ball and a tennis ball, paper cutting, rope cutting, cutting a suspended water bottle and lastly cutting adjacent eight plastic bottles.
