MY Parang Duku Chandong Machete 12" Carbon Steel Blade, Heavy Wood Handle, Nylon Sheath - MYPCDGT12
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.
