MANILA, Philippines — Outdoor adventurers, knife hobbyists and blade enthusiasts are expected to vie for top honors when the inaugural XO Blade Olympics cuts a unique sporting profile in the Philippines on April 26 at Melchor Foundation Conference Hall and Library in Pansol, Calamba, Laguna.

The competition, organized by eXOtic Custom Knives & Tools (XO Knives) in partnership with the Alejandro Melchor Jr. Foundation, celebrates the versatility of the knife and seeks to crown the country’s best master cutter.


The Blade Olympics is composed of multiple stages where each participant will be faced with cutting challenges in a time-trial event.
