MY Parang Bulan Machete 12" Carbon Steel Blade, Beech Wood Handle, Nylon Sheath - MYPBULN12
MYPBULN12: Parang Bulan
Bulan means Moon in the Malay language and you can see a slight resemblance of a half or crescent moon shape on the Parang Bulan. The wide belly gives this parang a very wide and effective chopping area. Among the other models, this parang is much heavier. It excels at larger tree limbs or trunks. It might be slightly on the heavy side for general use and leans more towards chopping work.
A prominent belly also makes sharpening the blade easy. Ease of sharpening and edge retention is a legendary characteristic of the Bidor made blades. The Parang Bulan includes a nylon sheath.
