One of the world's most versatile, capable and downright legendary machetes now comes with the rock-solid construction, ironclad guarantee and expert engineering that only the cutlery experts at Schrade can provide - the Schrade Parang Machete. The full-tang 13 11/16" 3Cr13 stainless steel blade boasts the distinctively curved, front-reinforced "golok" profile relied upon for centuries in southeast Asia, where jungles are notoriously dense and impenetrable. Developed originally for clearing paths through some of the most unforgiving, impassable terrain on earth, the parang quickly evolved into a jack-, nay, master of all trades. Part machete, part axe, part bowie knife, part cleaver, the Schrade Parang excels at practically any task you throw at it - chopping firewood, razing thick, woody brush, slashing tenacious, fibrous grasses, butchering game and so much more. Its superb weight-forward design bolsters swinging momentum and yields greater cutting power with less effort. An all-around pleasure to wield, the Schrade Parang features an exceptionally durable TPE handle that's textured for a no-slip grip and ergonomically contoured to boost comfort and reduce fatigue during use. The handle includes a handy lanyard hole for tethering, and the included heavy duty polyester sheath boasts a shoulder strap, belt loop and leg strap for maximum transport versatility. Best of all, the Schrade Parang is remarkably affordable, especially considering it's built to last a lifetime. Outfit your wilderness gear, toolshed or garage with the Schrade Parang, and you'll never have to buy another machete again! You'll also save energy and time otherwise spent trying to coax sufficient cutting power out of an inferior machete. The Schrade Parang stays sharp longer, and gets the job done quickly and completely the first time, every time.
