Blade length 6″

Handle length  4.5″

Price: from £335

This is a new design called the “Pocket Parang”.  It was developed when a few people requested a smaller version of our Orford Eban Parang.
Made from 3.5mm unground 01 tool steel it is easy to sharpen and holds a great edge. The 6″ blade still has the great curved cutting edge for efficient slicing abilty but the overall size makes it a better size to carry with you on a walk or fishing trip. The handle can be made from textured Micarta handle or the range of Hardwoods we use. It has the addition of a more pronounced finger guard means that there is a really good positive grip with no fear of your hand sliding towards the cutting edge even when cold and wet.

The design of the Pocket Parang makes a much more effective cutting tool than carrying a 6″ straight camp knife. For the size you will be surprised what it can do. The ability to clear brush and vegetation and build shelters, as well as fine work like making pot hangers and feather sticks is all possible due to the overall grind being convex with a flat grind near the handle for controlled cuts.

It comes with scandi-style leather sheath made from 3.5mm to 4mm leather or a Kydex sheath in a range of colours.
