My Parang has answered the call for wooden handled parangs!

Introducing the famous Bidor blades matched with perfectly contoured wooden handle. If you are looking for an authentic Malaysian made parang, this is it!

Made of quality 5160 high carbon steel with hand-quenched and zone hardened blades, this Golok will serve you well in all tasks. Authentic forged marks on each golok is an art in itself. The traditional wooden handle made of Beech wood is the most comfortable handle you can ever hold! No more blisters or hotspots, you can chop all day long.

While the Chandong is common in East Malaysia , the Golok is a very common design in West Malaysia.  Goloks can be seen commonly sold in hardware and certain convenience stores throughout Peninsular Malaysia. It is common to have a golok or two at home, especially if you live in the suburbs. They are general use tools , from skinning animals to cutting weeds to opening coconuts.

Goloks can be characterized by the pointed tip as can be seen above. The tip is pretty strong and the point makes it easy to dig and pry holes. Due to the shape of the tip, it is not really suitable to chop with it, compared to the sheeps foot tip. Goloks also have a prominent belly which can sometimes be a problem with sharpening, especially if your sharpening stone is wide.

    Light weight. Feels very solid in the hand.

    Can match other more expensive blades of this size.

    Most important the service of the shop is difficult to match anywhere.
