    Default Condor Village Parang?

    Ever since I first saw my first new Condor Village Parang online it was love at first sight. I just sold an 'ukulele, and now I have knife money but nobody seems to have these in stock. Like Sasquatch & Nessy do these knives actually exist?

    The 2012 models were supposed to be out in April. That turned into beginning of May. I called a couple places and they were still waiting as of Wednesday. I'm itchin' for a few new models myself.

    I handled a few this year a PWYP and found For Me some not well balanced for my uses compared to my HI WWII Kukurie.

    I have purchased Parangs from both of the above places and chopped up a small pickup truck bed worth of holly bushes with it with no issues. Worked like a champ, those curved handle really amplify the wrist action.

    The Condor/Imacasa rep in Florida, Richard I think, told me they should be in stores in June. I emailed him this week cause I want one too.

    I REALLY like them authentic parangs but the shipping costs prices them above the Condor. Parang purists will hate me but I like Condor's full tang handle design, and their outstanding warranty doesn't hurt.

    Ahn,, in any case you will find that the size ratio and carry weight to a Straight Blade Machete will surprise you. It is a Different way of use not down and chop with just the length of the blade more of a sweep & snap and the Ball/curve/angel of the handle is Most important to this function.I would add a cord to the rear as a wrist wrap till you get the Idea ...sweaty hands
