Gerber Bear Grylls Parang
According to Wikipedia a Parang is a type of knife used across the Malayan archipelago. It is often mistakenly assumed to be a sword; however, there is no evidence that it has ever been used in a formal military conflict, nor that its intended purpose was to be used as a combat weapon.
The Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Parang Knife is a more convenient size for the long haul, a shoulder-friendly answer to a full-size machete. The stout, full tang blade takes on brush and campsite tasks alike, the oversized bolster and rubber grip add comfort for multiple swings.
The Blade: Small and Sturdy
The size and shape of its 450 gram blade focuses weight toward the tip for more power behind every swing. With a high carbon steel, full tang construction, it won’t bend, bow, or wobble when it strikes hardwood. Its compact 236 mm blade makes it easier to handle in dense underbrush.
The grippy, rubberized handle fills your hand, and the oversized bolster and butt on either end of the handle keeps the tool snug in your palm, swing after sweaty swing. Finally, just to be on the safe side, there is a lanyard cord to slip around your wrist for that last measure of no-slip insurance.
When you’re not using the Parang to break trail, or open a coconut, slide it into its military-grade, mildew-resistant sheath and strap it to your belt or the outside of your pack.
On the back of the sheath you’ll find land-to-air rescue signals. It also comes with a copy of Bear’s “Priorities of Survival” Pocket Guide to help you focus your attention on the details that matter most when you are in a jam.
