The MY Parang – Parang Rintis

Parang Rintis
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 .

MY Parang – Duku Chandong 8″

The MY Parang – Duku Chandong 8″

MY Parang Duku Chandong 8"
MY Parang Duku Chandong 8″

Released today, 17th October 2019. This mini but mighty parang has stirred quite some interest when we posted it on our social media way back in April this year. Back then, we just had some samples made out for testing and we were skeptical on how it would perform . An 8″ blade? Like seriously ??? What is it going to do? Would it be use-able?

Then we took it for a field test……..

And it was a GO ! It surprised us, and it will surprise you !

The MY Parang Duku Chandong 8″ was just phenomenal. We tried it on many different things , wood, bamboo, sticks, grass, branches and even in the kitchen. Cutting , chopping, prying , slicing.  What we found out was that The MY Parang Duku Chandong 8″ is definitely not a full sized parang capable of taking down barrel sized trees. Unless you intend to do so, this 8″ Duku Chandong actually excels at smaller tasks and is capable of more that you think.

On our field test, we tried it on beer-can sized trees and it was a pleasure to use. We used it to debark , and it was a pleasure to use. We used it to pry open Durians , and it worked flawlessly! It is also small enough to use in the kitchen , dressing chickens or cleaning game. Cuts through meat and chops through the toughest bone. By all means, this 8″ Chandong is now our favourite.

It’s short length and light weight makes it such a pleasure to carry everywhere. When you sit , it is short enough to not yank on your belt. It is light and compact enough for weight weenies and barely feels like its there.

We foresee that this model will be one of the best selling models. If you want something light and compact, this is the one.

So now we have 4 different types of Duku Chandongs – The 8″ , 10″ , 12″ and the 12″ Heavy

Specifications for the MY Duku Chandong 8″ are as follows:

  • Blade length : 20 cm / 8 in.
  • Handle length: 17 cm / 6.7 in
  • Overall length: 37 cm / 14.7 in
  • Widest blade: 5 cm / 1.9 in
  • Weight ( blade and handle ) : 335 g / 11.8 oz.
  • Sheath length: 23 cm / 9 in
  • Width: 8 cm / 3 in
  • Weight: 145 g / 5.1 oz
  • Gross weight : 480 g / 16.9 oz

MY Parang – Golok 120

MY Parang Golok 120

MY Parang Golok 120

Another smaller version of the 125 / 135 , this MY Parang Golok 120 is slightly shorter and lighter than the MY Parang Golok 115 . Weighing only at 320 grams / 11.3 oz, it is so far the lightest in our stable of parangs .

Light does not mean ineffective , in fact , a lighter tool does not tire you as much as a heavy tool . You can chop with it  or carry it in your backpack all day long  and you will not even even feel tired. We would call it a large – robust knife. Not meant for heavy chopping but worth its weight in the jungles.

The slim and long blade also makes it a suitable blade for cleaning game, especially with the belly and pointed tip.  The thinner steel and steeper grind also performs better when cutting and slicing.

It is also adapted to suit those who are in search of a lighter Parang for:

  • Backpacking and hiking
  • General trail maintenance
  • Ladies or those who prefer something smaller and lighter
  • Skinning game

Matched with a slim sheath, the total weight is a miserable 480 grams / 17 oz .

While the Golok 115 may be slightly shorter and heavier, we are very confident that this MY Parang Golok 120 of ours will fare equally well. Always choose the best tool to suit your job.

Specifications for the MY Parang golok 120 are as below:

  • Blade length : 27.5 cm / 11  in
  • Handle length: 17 cm / 6.7 in
  • Overall length: 44.5 cm / 17.7 in
  • Widest blade: 4.0 cm / 1.7 in
  • Weight ( blade and handle ) : 390 grams / 11.3 oz
  • Sheath length: 34.5  cm / 13.5 in
    Width: 6.5 cm / 2.5 in
    Weight: 150 grams / 5.3 oz
  • Gross weight : 480  grams / 17 oz

Besides the MY Parang – Parang Tangkin and the MY Parang – Parang Machete we also recently added a third model – the Parang Bulan

MY Parang - Parang Bulan
MY Parang – Parang Bulan

Bulan means Moon in the Malay language and you can see a slight resemblance of a half or crescent moon shape on the Parang Bulan. The wide belly gives this parang a very wide and effective chopping area. Among the other two recently released models, this parang is much heavier. It excels at larger tree limbs or trunks. it might be slightly on the heavy side for general use and leans more towards chopping work. To chop all day long you would need ripped forearms, but if you don’t have them, they perfect for short hard work.

A prominent belly also makes sharpening the blade easy. Easy of sharpening and edge retention is a legendary characteristic of the Bidor made blades. They Parang Bulan  are also sold with the nylon sheath.

Here are some stats for those who like numbers:

– Blade length – 30.5 cm / 12 in
– Handle length – 17 cm / 6.7 in
– Overall length – 47.5 cm /  in
– Widest blade – 5.5 cm / 2.0 in
– Weight – 610 grams / 21.5 oz
– Gross weight ( with sheath and box )  – 900 gram / 31.7 oz
