The Cold Steel Barong Machete is based on the Barong blade shape, common throughout all of Southeast Asia and a popular style within the Filipino martial arts. 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.

The curved 18 inch 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.

Some ups and downs that you can deal with to a point
Marc P.
First of all, the knife: no denial very well made but heavy, rather thick overall-thicker than the Filipino version! Handle especially-How fixed? Had mine sharpened to razor edge and in order to do this, a substantial amount of steel was ground off. It lightens this somewhat when you take enough steel off .This may help a little also-use bicycle inner tube to cover handle. Yes, I am Filipino.
Other issue: The scabbard is disgusting!! I've seen cardboard stronger than this. Solution: find a custom kydex or leather scabbard maker that's what I plan to do.
Still a keeper-tough good quality!
