Itak Tagalog #2 – The Eastern Tagalog region in the Philippines has used this bladed tool only for cracking coconuts and for harvesting root crops. Eventually it evolved to become one of the deadly weapons of the Tagalog people. The Itak Tagalog was used by young boys who joined their father in the revolution and it was also used by the young women and their mothers in defending the town while the men are in the battlefields. This is our newer model in the Itak Tagalog series which we have deemed Itak Tagalog #2. It promises to be a powerful, fast blade with greater penetration and weight than even its predecessor.
Itak, like Bolo or Kalis, is another word in the Philippines for bladed weapon See our other TFW Itak Tagalog #1 here – https://www.traditionalfilipinoweapons.com/shop/itak-tagalog-1/
Here is a video that proves how well the edge of the Itak Tagalog holds up after abuse. Of course this holds true for all TFW bladed weapons: http://
