The Cold Steel Barong Machete is a quality chopping tool that is based off of a classic Southeast Asian design. The Barong is used as both a general purpose utility tool as well as a self-defense blade. The Cold Steel version is true to the original's lines and provides their usual machete features like coated carbon steel for durability and a polypropylene handle for all-weather use.
The Barong Machete's leaf style blade is known for its excellent penetrating and slashing abilities. Additionally, the down-turned handle locks the machete to the hand and provides additional security when using the Barong for heavy chopping.
