The MY Parang – Parang Rintis
Slim, thin and with a gentled – curved – sickle – like blade, the Parang Rintis is an excellent tool for clearing shrubs , weeds and tall grass. It was designed to be light and easy to maneuver while able to have some reach. It’s inward – curved edge makes cutting thin and stringy plants and vines a breeze . If any of you have tried cutting rattan leaves and the resam fern, you know what I mean.
It is also suitable for small brances, up to thumb size. You can cut bigger diameters, but it will require more strokes to cut as this parang is slightly on the light side.
Rintis means Pioneering and is suitably named as we see this parang being popular with mountain climbers, hikers and those who venture deep into the jungle to fish. Paired with our slim sheath ,Light weight, 12 inches long and great slashing abilities are all it’s forte .
