Description

Description

Civilizations create knives. Derived cutlery styles are individual and linked to the culture, ethnicity and geographic domain of the people. The Philippines’ vibrant cutlery history is as varied as its indigenous people. A Filipino knife of the Moro people is a Barong. Barongs are wide, leaf-shaped blades. They come in all sizes, long and short, but commonly have thick curving bellies angling downward and aligning the wrist with the cutting edge.

Championing ethnic-influenced knifemaking is artist Ed Schempp. A curious world wanderer, Ed is also an esteemed metallurgist, Damascus maker, wheat farmer and knife designer. He’s crafted several stylized ethnic folders with Spyderco, the latest based on the Barong. A pronounced spine-cusp and choil indent give great control over the wide and stable blade, designed originally for controlling vegetation and personal safety. The blade is VG-10 and ground fully-flat. Its G-10 handle is foliage green with a Michael Walker LinerLock®, full- length internal liners and an ambidextrous tip-up clip.
