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.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard

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.
