The Barong is common throughout all of Southeast Asia. Often used as an agricultural tool, it is also known as a savagely effective implement of warfare.
The Barong also makes an excellent bushcraft tool, cleaving vines and branches with ease. Its classically shaped down-turned polypropylene handle anchors the blade in the hand and helps to resist centrifugal forces when making a hard chopping or slashing strokes.
Its beautifully curved 18" leaf shaped blade is made from 1055 Carbon Steel with a baked on, matte black finish to aid in rust resistance, and each Barong comes complete with a Cor-Ex sheath for ease of carry and convenience of use.
Many of the employees here at Cold Steel, including our company President Lynn C. Thompson are practitioners of the Filipino Martial Arts and have great admiration for the Barong. We are proud to release this new interpretation of the classic Barong to our modern tactical Machete offerings.
