Description

MYPCDGT12: Duku Chandong 12" Heavy

MY Parang

The Duku Chandong, sometimes referred to as the "Ray Mears", the parang originates from East Malaysia. It's a general purpose tool, and what sets it apart from other parangs is the sheepsfoot's blade tip and how the handle is elevated. The tip is very strong and suitable for prying, and the upward handle causes the blade to arrive first followed by the knuckles. This feature works great especially if you are cutting near the ground or near a solid object such as a big tree trunk, because it prevents you from bashing your knuckles. The 5160 carbon steel blade has a slightly upward curve, which favors slicing and chopping methods. This type of cut is very effective at cutting small plants as well as thicker wood or vegetation.

Awesome chopper and very comfortable.
Awesome and comfortable for chopping and slicing. Very practical in any jungle situation. Blade retention is very good. However the blade need to be oiled.

The Real Deal
I've bought several of these authentic Bidor Parangs over the years. Spring steel, stock reduction technique, differential hardening, convexed edge grind...all good. Choppers. If I lived in Florida or some such leafy swamp I'd get a long one to slash trails, etc. But I live in the Pacific NW - Oregon...Conifers, Maple, Alder. I use these to help prep green wood to carve spoons & bowls. You can buy these cheap with the original plastic handle or the fancy My Parang version. Either will work hard and serve you well. Great tools...not pretty...just tough.
