Words like “sinuous” and “graceful” come to mind. But give it a swing, and you’ll start thinking “balanced,” “powerful” and “scary sharp.” The Parang originated in Indonesia, where the more fibrous undergrowth required a “sweet spot” further forward of the handle for stronger chopping action. Brass-riveted hardwood handle has an ergonomic curve for hours of fatigue-free use. Includes a leather snap-secured scabbard. Forged in El Salvador by the craftsmen of Condor.
