Weekend Sale: KA-BAR Adventure Parangatang

Go ahead, go wild.

Go ahead, go wild.

This machete is part of the KA-BAR/Johnson Adventure line-up of knives. Built in the parang-style, the blade makes for a great choice for more intense chopping tasks, as the style was originally developed to deal with the woodier vegetation of South East Asia.

The 14-and-one-eighth inch blade is made from 1095 Cro-Van steel with a flat grind and an edge angle of 20 degrees. The blade comes extremely sharp right out of the box. (Trust me.)

Great balance and slim looks helps make the Parangatang a sure winner.

The Adventuregrip handle is made up of two textured Zytel scales, which provide great grip and hand feel. The length of the handle also allows for a couple of different grips depending on your current task.

Weighing in at just less than 21 ounces, the Parangatang feels nicely balanced and should make for a comfortable item to carry and utilize in the field. I really like how the slim blade doesn’t compromise mobility with unnecessary broadness.

It also comes with a MOLLE compatible Cordura sheath and is made in the United States.

Overall, the KA-BAR Parangatang is an impressively balanced offering. It should make an ideal companion out in the field.
