Cold Steel 97BAM18S Barong Machete, Black Handle
Cold steel 97bam18s barong machete, black handle .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. 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.
