    Gunting Symbol on blade?

    Greetings,

    So, what is the symbol on the Gunting blade? I'm guessing its Bram's sig. or something, but I just can't see it.

    ahh the LOGO..its a Filipino cutting action made into a celtic type design..as seen from the third person point of view..its VERY different first person INSIDE the motion..
    they make great tattoo flash..ROFL..the particular one is the main logo for CSSD/SC..its a pattern of "Flow" that Professor Presas calls " Abaniko double Action"..used to be one of his favorite conceptual moves...
    The motions lines are the tip of the blade moving through the air ..or whatever is in its way....

    I make lots of Filipino fighting flash...

    ahhh OK translation of the move????

    #1 cut, Abaniko corto- right to left, #10 cut and cirkulo up....
    or inside Gunting strike with Kin-Op opening. wrist slap-ramp strike,ramp strike & lock up...ramp raking with pull..elbow crank with finger break...

    inside Gunting, outside gunting, elbow break...hammer lock..goose-neck lock....

    Hi Bram,
    Thanks for the answers. As I'm trying to puzzel this out I've got a few more quetions. Is the logo viewed with the tip up or to the left? Which is the starting point the one closest to the tip? And on Point of View, as show that's the way it would look if I were watching someone else do it? I like the flash idea, and would like to see more. Thanks.

    Gavin

    you're right..you are watching someone else do it..
    tip position is not important...
    all filipino drill and conceptual motions
    become Flow drills....and flash..the middle arc is a #1 arcing strike...go from there...

    >>>Is the logo viewed with the tip up or to >>>the left?
    I was wonder which way the Logo's was right side up, when look at the one on the blade. Tip left. I found it on the web.
    Thanks again. And, thanks for designing such a great knife.
