BARK RIVER KNIVES MORO BORONG

FILIPINO MARTIAL ARTISTS



I don't know about you, but I collect knives of all kinds for practice and personal protection.  Have been doing so for a fairly long time.



Bark River Knives (BRK) makes a very nice Moro Borong, but it in A2 steel. A2 steel is a good steel but because it is a tool steel there are much better steels out there to be had.



I called BRK and they told me that if I wanted to see the Moro Barong in CPM 3V, which is…

Hello All!

GM Taboada Illness

Hello all!

 

I just found out that GM Bobby Taboada of World Balintawak Arnis Escrima,Charlotte, North Carolina has been hospitalized for over one month through Virgil Cavada.  Allegedly Dan Inosanto asked Virgil to check in to it and he is.  I have an email out to Virgil and if I find out any more I will let everyone know what happened.

 

Thanks,

Thomas
