BH15TT10BK: Tatang

Tatang is a Tagalog term of address reserved for only the most feared and respected martial artists. In honor of this proud warrior tradition, we have made a knife that distills the savage cutting power of the traditional Filipino barong into a smaller, more versatile package. When gripped at the rear of the pistol-grip-style, thermoplastic rubber handle, the weight-forward balance of the Tatang's black epoxy-coated 1085C tool-steel blade gives it tremendous reach and chopping power. Choking up on the integral subhilt shifts the balance back for more controlled cutting, trapping, and backcutting with the sharpened false edge. Designed by edged-weapons expert Michael Janich, this incredible knife comes complete with a reinforced ballistic nylon sheath.

Great combat blade.
Got my Tatang back in early 2011 for my deployment to Iraq. Ditched the garbage sheath for a kydex dropleg scabbard. This knife helped save my butt more than 20+ times. Doing patrols at night where most dangers came from feral dogs that love nothing more than to want to bite you. Walking around our AO where an obvious gunshot would be unnecessary and give away your position this blade came to aid in the slaying of animals that threatened my well being. Having it on the drop leg holster gave it a distinct advantage to be able to be drawn like a handgun. The curved handle helped serve as a perfect fulcrum point for precise down thrusts that would easily go 1/4 through someones neck. This knife is well balanced and can't say anything more than its a nice that the blade is much larger than the hilt. Put it to real world applications like intended and not for battoning wood or some video game b.s. enthusiast. Will never part with this blade away.

Nice knife, but...
I ordered this knife because of the video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. When this knife arrived a couple of days ago, the first thing that popped into my mind was Crocodile Dundee's "That's a knife" quote. This is a big knife and, for me, a problem. The blade is longer than the hilt. You see, you'll need to have a strong grip to use the knife as well as keep it secure i.e. in your possession. In stabbing a post, the knife kept wanted to twist out of my hand especially if I used force. However, when chopping a post, especially low on the hilt, proved advantageous. With the sheath, I would have preferred a kydex sheath rather than nylon.
