Panagpanday (Blacksmithing)

The people of Ilocos Norte are very well familiar with the products of the Panagpanday industry as they are predominantly utilized all year round by the farmers of the province. However, so little has been told or portrayed in the public about the processes involved in making the simple kumpay to the more intricate arado. The basic processes involved in the production of the different pinanday products beginning with the rigorous road-to-road calling to buy scrap metals called landok, to winnowing and lighting up the coal called agyubuyob, hammering the heated metal or panagpitpit, simultaneous with panagsebseb using damped tiger weeds tied up to a stick of wood, to finishing the product with the use of carabao horn.
