Recently, Toronto was slammed with heavy storms and flash floods. Suddenly I had a flashback to my youth. It was 1996 and our family was living in Manila, The Philippines.

My music started to take me to new places, and with each destination I tried to find something to bring home to the armoury: twin dragon daggers from the Edinburgh castle in Scotland, a swordfish tusk blade complete with clay sheath from Costa Rica, a pair of boot daggers from Germany. It was about marking the place and time taking a piece of cold, hard proof home. I was growing my edge.
