A golok is a cutting tool, similar to a machete, that comes in many variations and is found throughout the Malay archipelago. It is used as an agricultural tool as well as a weapon.
Sizes and weights vary, as does blade shape, but the typical length is 25 to 50 centimeters. Golok tends to be heavier and shorter than parang or common machetes, often being used for bush and branch cutting. Most traditional golok use a convex edge or an edgewise taper, where the blade is less likely to get stuck in greenwood than flat-edged machetes. The blade is heaviest in the center and flows away in a curve to a sharp point at the tip.
