    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 have the one with the previous handle design, the CS Barong machete. And also own the CS kukri, light machete, and gave my spear point 18" as a gift. The Barong is truly excellent 5/5 and has exceeded my expectations. I prefer the reach it affords in case of an attacker, and love the leverage for chopping. It has a sweet spot where it angles perfectly in the wood and the blow is absorbed well. I did have one slip upwards while chopping with the old handle design but thankfully was not injured at all. I have cut immeasurable weeds with it. And I cut through a tree over 2 feet thick in half with it.
