CS88CT: 88CT Filipino Memorial Bolo Sword
Cold Steel
 
The Filipino Bolo Sword comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. But the sword that inspired this project came from the private family collection of Guru, Dan Inosanto. It is a style of Bolo sword known as a Talibong and it has a history of opposing many formidable blades like the Kris, Barong, Kampilan and even the Japanese Katana. It was a sword extensively utilized by the brave Filipino soldiers who fought for America in World War II and the Korean War. Currently, there are some 17,000 surviving Filipino Veterans out of the original 260,000 who served. Cold Steel will be donating 10 percent of the profit on this sword to the Filipino Veterans Recognition and Education Project to buy replica Congressional Gold Medals for surviving veterans and their families.

Excellent Filipino Bolo!
I coincidentally received this on the day of Guru Dan Inosanto’s 83rd birthday. I’ve trained in Kali, including having the honor and privilege of training with Guru Dan. This bolo is a beautiful, functional, sword. Well made, nicely balanced, nice edge, and it fits my hand like part of my hand. *If* I ever had to use this I would be confident that I have a capable weapon. This is my first purchase from Knife Center, and my first Cold Steel purchase, and I am extremely satisfied.
