The MY Parang Duku Chandong 10" is a compact and reliable parang made exclusively by hand in Malaysia, using time-honoured methods and only the finest materials available. It features a hand-quenched 10-inch blade made of high quality 5160 high carbon steel, fitted with a comfortable and traditional handle design made from renewably-sourced beech.

The traditional parang is embedded in everyday life and culture throughout Malaysia, where great pride is taken in crafting these heavy-duty tools. For this model, each blade has been sourced from Bidor in Perak, an area well known for its hardened 5160 carbon steel blades. The tang follows the conventional 'rat-tail' construction, a proven design that has withstood the test of time and evolution. For added confidence, the blade is also pinned underneath the copper collar using a 2.5 mm brass pin.

Maintain your parang by keeping it sharp and oiled, and always remember to use it responsibly; any abuse or misuse could potentially result in serious damage or injury.

  I don't know what more you could want from a parang, it's just about as good as you can get and a perfect companion to your Woodlore Knife.

  A solid parang, I am planning a jungle trip and wanted a tool that is built for the environment and I am very happy with my decision. Thank you woodlore I can always rely on my favourite outfitters :)

  An excellent Parang for coppice work and clearing undergrowth. It’s easy to keep a sharp edge and not too heavy in use.

  The parang itself is an excellent item. The 10' version (offered here) has, IMHO better balance and is handier than the 12' version available. The steel is easily sharpened and 'bulletproof'. The handle needs a light sanding and a touch of finishing with boiled linseed oil . No problem at all, it takes minutes. The scabbard however is not good at all and I will source an alternative. The belt loop needs to be a 'dangler' but this one is a simple nylon loop and cannot be attached to a belt properly. The safety strap (velcro) is too short and you cannot secure the parang and wear it on a belt at the same time. If Woodlore manufactured a much safer leather sheath/scabbard I feel it would sell very well and make the package much better. Don't let the scabbard issue put you off though. This parang is much better than a small hatchet for most things and far more practical, more balanced and lighter than say a kukri.

  Very nice quality item, husband very pleased. Only gripe, it would be nice to see the belt loop on sheath made for a left handed person, otherwise nicely made.

  It looks the part and well made, but it did take a few hours to get the blade up to where I felt it should be. There is a nice weight to it that you could work with for prolonged periods of time. So far its main use has been working with willow and clearing brush. Overall I'm happy with it.

  Great parang. Well made, the steel quality is what it should be and looks really beautiful. The blade is straight. Definitely not a paper weight and well-priced, a working tool that should last many years if not a lifetime if you look after it. I am very happy. The delivery service was excellent, well worth the 6 quid or there about, thanks folks to all involved.
