This is my second barong/seax hybrid in AEB-L, hired by a friend to make this one. Pretty happy with how it turned out. I really like this design for a do-it-all woods knife, because it can carve and whittle, it's nimble for trail clearing, and with its convex geometry, it's a good chopper and batoner, even at only 1/8" thick. I have made a few of these in carbon steel, and now these two in AEB-L, and so far I think I like this one the best. Thanks for looking.
