The Filipino Barong Machete is a great choice for several reasons. It is longer than most fighting knives without being measurably heavier – making it a favorite of martial arts folks. It’s a very easy and effective weapon to wield. It is also a favorite of outdoorsmen in the know, as it is weighted towards the front of the blade, making it great for clearing foliage tirelessly.

More information from Condor:
This 14″ Filipino machete came at the request of martial artists for a long but lighter heavy duty martial arts weapon. The Condor Barong will perform well in the hands of any outdoorsman or practitioner, with a full flat grind and distal taper, and a black leather sheath. At 14″, the leaf shaped blade is one of the handiest cutting tools available. Additionally, a sharp point and a hidden tang all the way to the back of the handle make it tough enough for any boar.
