The Barong, with its unique leaf shaped blade, is common throughout all of Southeast Asia. Very often it is used for utilitarian purposes to clear jungles or as an agricultural tool, but it is also known as a savagely effective weapon of warfare. We at Cold Steel admire the Barong and are proud to offer it here as a Machete in 12 and 18-inch blade lengths
The machete has proven to be the ultimate outdoor and survival tool. It will cut, chop, slash, or smash just about anything you can put in front of it. It can be used to kill both fish and game and will also field dress and prepare them for the table as well. And when you look at its meager cost, it's got to be one of th best bargains for the money.
These blades are made out of 1055 Carbon Steel with a tough spring temper and are surfaced witha black, baked-on anti-rust finish. Each Cold Steel® Machete comes with a good utility edge which, with just a little work, can be made hair shaving sharp.
The tough, polypropylene handles of our machetes are designed to provide a comfortable secure grip and they are rugged enough to resist chipping, cracking or breaking so they last practically forever.
