  • Tatang is a Tagalog term of address reserved for only the most feared and respected martial artists. In honor of this proud warrior tradition, Blackhawk has 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 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. Designed by edged-weapons expert Michael Janich, this incredible knife comes complete with a reinforced ballistic nylon sheath.

    • Overall length: 13.500"
    • Blade material: 1085C high-carbon tool steel
    • Blade: Black epoxy coating
    • Handle: Thermoplastic rubber with textured panels
    • Sheath: Reinforced ballistic nylon

  • 5 out of 5 i'm from the Phil.- Tatang knife is a fighting knife thus the double bladed design ( maximum injury -with downward /upward slashing on pullback after penetration ) , the edge is shaped for either thrusting or cutting , and the pistol handle for a quick draw be it placed on the hips or shoulder (similarly worn as if it is a gun )

  • 3 out of 5 I thought the blade was terrific, good balance nice finish. However, the handle and sheath seemed to be slapped on as afterthought. I wrapped the handle in para cord, that helped. But I, like many other I know who got this knife, am going to start to look for a new

  • 5 out of 5 I bought one of these knives about a year or so ago,and I couldn't be happier.Great size and blade shape.I love the pistol grip style handle.It is comfortable in forward or reverse grip,and using the finger choil is also comfortable in forward or reverse grip.It gets and holds a great edge. It looks like a straight up tactical blade and that's that. It truly is an outstanding knife.

  • 4 out of 5 This is a great knife. The weight is great, and feels very well balanced. I was not 100% sold on the curved handle, but I actually really like it; it feels very comfortable held either normally or reversed. The one and only thing that kept this knife from getting the perfect rating is the seemingly cheap sheath. For as nice and expensive as the knife is, the sheath is very poorly matched to the quality of the knife. A kydex, quick draw type sheath would be great, but I would have even settled for something that would work with molle gear. Overall still a great knife, with the one disappointment of the sheath being pretty cheap.

  • 4 out of 5 For fans of non-stainless, carbon steel blades, the Tatang offers more than a well made fighting knife. The blade is made from 1/4" 1085, coated black, with a fully sharpened false edge on its spearpoint blade. It is, as another reviewer stated, also a fine bushcraft knife, and a formidable chopper, comparing favorably to a Becker BK-9. The handle is quite comfortable, and the balance of the knife is superb, feeling light in the hand considering how much steel one is holding. I also agree that a Kydex (or similar) sheath would be a solid plus; the nylon sheath is well done for what it is, yet seems to be little more than someplace to store the knife, and demands that the handle clasp be secured if one is humping through the woods, or the knife could easily fall out. Sensational blade on a well made knife.

  • 4 out of 5 With a broad thick tool steel blade the Tatang's toughness and edge retention so far have been impressive. The blade geometry, the ergonomics of the handle, and the balance make this knife formidable as a weapon or tool. Wether intended for self defense or for bush craft, the Tatang thus far has been excellent for me and I would recommend this knife to any blade enthusiast. My one complaint is the sheath. With all the quality and superior design Blackhawk put into this tool I'm not sure why they didn't opt for a more useful sheath. I would like to see a Kydex sheath with Tech lock available for this knife.
