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.
A popular blade style within the Filipino martial arts, the Barong has a fearsome reputation for inflicting massive wounds and deep slashing cuts.
The Barong also makes a good bushcraft tool. It will cleave vines and branches with ease. It's classically shaped down-turned polypropylene handle anchors the blade in the hand and helps to resist centrifugal forces when making hard chopping or slashing strokes.
The beautifully curved 18 inch leaf shaped blade is 1055 Carbon Steel with a baked on, matte black finish for rust resistance, and each Barong comes complete with a Cor-Ex sheath for ease of carry and convenience of use.
Practitioners of the Filipino Martial Arts have great admiration for the Barong. We are proud to offer this new interpretation of the classic Barong to our modern tactical Machete offerings.
