From the jungles of Malaysia comes the parang, an extremely well balanced heavy machete that will slice, chop and cleave its way through anything. The 17 1/2" 1075 high carbon steel blade's distinctive tapering makes this one of the best performing large cutting machetes on the market today. A tough black epoxy coating protects the blade from the elements, and a contoured hardwood handle makes it a pleasure to wield. Includes a durable black leather sheath. Measures 24" overall.
