Condor Parang Machete
I've used traditional styled machetes all my life ( I'm first generation Cuban American ) and the geometry of the parang is far superior. With the traditional machete it is the force of the swing that cuts through the brush. The curved blade of the parang with the weight shifted towards the end has the blade doing all the work unlike traditional meringues which have a rat tail Tang, the Condor perang has a full tang with beautifully sculpted hardwood scale handle. The sheath is top quality leather professionally its ownwith a swivel belt loop which comes in very handy. I've been collecting blades 40 over 45 years, and I have to admit that I would have paid 3 times the price just based on the quality of this product.
