    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 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 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.

    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.

    I really wish cold steel would make a Ginunting machete to compliment this beautiful Barong machete.

    I wish they would bring back the short version.
    That is the one I use at work all the time.

    Wonderful blade, love the redesign of the handle to look more traditional. Like many others here, if CS were to make more Filipino-type blades like the Kampilan, I'd buy them in a minute!

    I don't actually own this yet, looks great though. Just wanted to let the poster above know that he's half right. Traditional formal Filipino shirts are called Barong's, however this blade style shares the same name. A parang has a similar handle but has a more upswept blade and not much of a point. Both styles are used throughout Asia not just the Phillipines.

    to the guy above who said its called a Parang.The joke's on you my friend.IT is indeed called a Barong but should be spelled Barung.I know because i live in the Philippines,I am a Muslim and I practice Kali and Silat!A Parang is a totally differently shaped sword!
