New Condor Tool and Knife Barong Machete!
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.

Spyderco Barong Folder
This is a great folder. It has a great blade reminiscent of the LUM design- leaf shaped with an oversized hole for easy access. The handle, though, is minimal made of G10 with steel liners. It really stays out of the way. The blade is 4 inches of flat ground VG10 stainless and the knife is made in Japan. The action is smooth as the blade just flies open with minimal effort and the liner is easy to access to release the blade.
