Filipino barong machete

Machete variants of world / ethnographic / non-European weaponry have grown to pe popular the past decade or so, and I heartily approve - they're a great inexpensive learning tool for how edged weapons of other cultures handled - and they're also a fun way to keep your yard trimmed (just don't try to cut really big things with a machete - they're not axes - I had one idiot friend get a lot of stitches after attempting to cut 1 1/2" tree branches with a machete while balanced on his roof). Anyway - cultural machetes = cool.

This Filipino barong machete is made in South Africa (can't get too much more multicultral than that), and features a full tang 1055HC steel blade with a baked-on anti-rust matte black finish and a nearly-indestructible polypropylene handle. The sheath is black cordura nylon.
