    Default Mike Janich's Tatang Knife



    Designed by edged-weapons expert Michael Janich, the Tatang employs the savage cutting power of a traditional Filipino barong in a leaner, more versatile package. When gripped at the rear of the pistol-grip-style handle, the weight-forward blade gives it tremendous reach and chopping power. Choking up on the subhilt shifts the balance back for more controlled cutting, trapping, and backcutting.

    Specifications:
    Blade length: 8.600/218 mm
    Overall length: 13.500/343 mm
    Blade material: 1085C high-carbon tool steel
    Blade finish: Black epoxy finish
    Edge type: Plain or partially serrated
    Handle material: Thermoplastic rubber with textured panels
    Sheath: Reinforced ballistic nylon

    MSRP: $119.99
    One Source Price: $78.99
    You Save: $41.00 (34 %)

    Is this a single edge, or a double edge?

    You need to see if you can offer a Fricke sheath for that!

    Dale did a sheath for a full size kukri for me... If he can do that, a tatang should be easy!

  7. Gentlemen:

    Thanks for your kind words on the Tatang. It comes right out of the box with a sharpened false edge, so no additional handywork is necessary. The blade thickness is, I believe, .200-inch (I'm at the office and that knife isn't, so I'm going off memory).

    The subhilt allows you to choke up for fine work. A standard grip gives you leverage for chopping. It's designed to comine the best elements of the barong, Bowie, and subhilt all in one.

    Stay safe,

    Mike

    It's an amazing-looking knife Mike. I'm weakening markedly...reckon I'll be ordering soon.

    BTW, can I ask what an accomplished knife maker has in his pocket or on his hip for EDC?
