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.
First thing you will notice is how the blade is angled upwards. Some people may find this quite awkward, but in fact it is very ergonomic. It works especially well when you are positioned low on the ground. Using the Parang Tangkin in this position enables the blade to hit parallel to the ground, keeping your knuckles safe. This will enable the user to fully use the entire blade or the sweet spot for chopping. Compared to other Parangs, you might hit the tip into the ground when cutting from a low position.
Comes with a sturdy ballistic nylon sheath with a hard plastic liner and MOLLE attachments.
