12.5 inch Heavy Duty Machete knife (KHHI Parang)

One of the new types introduced by KHHI, outside the re-curve shape of the legendary khukuri, to enhance its splendid collection of the hardcore jungle warfare knives and cutting tools. Its shape and size are influenced from 'Parang', a short heavy straight-edged knife, which is widely used in Malaysia and Indonesia as a tool and weapon.

The thick heavy blade of this 'HD Machete' is the driving force of the knife which drives it against and thru any surfaces with ease and massive impact. It is designed for a stronger chopping action backed up by a heavier blade and the blade is also beveled more obtusely to prevent it from binding in the cut. This full sized heavy duty machete is both; an ARMOR - that can be used for attacking and defending; a TOOL - that can be used as chopper for cutting just about anything; and also a HAMMER, to pounding things by its bulky spine. It is also a simple domestic knife that will come handy in yards, gardens and stuffs. The knife is large enough to tackle woody brush yet small enough to handle easily for small games.

The thickness is 7mm in size that goes all the way down and is securely wrapped by high quality military standard paracord. This is wisely done to give counter balance to the blade. The full flat tang is then wrapped using a special wrapping technique developed by KHHI. It is securely wrapped in such a fashion that the user feels very easy and safe to hold the knife, thus very handy. The blade is full 12.5” long constructed for heavy duty hence the name 'HD Machete'.

Custom Parang with Stacked Leather handle

Namaste Lim Subba! 

It arrived today. I’m utterly speechless. Such incredibly masterful work yet again. You and your team NEVER disappoint and now you have given me a difficult task - trying to decide which of your blades I like most! It is impossible to choose! This is a great problem to have, believe me! 

I cannot thank you enough for your unending patience with this project. As you always have been, you were generous with your time and attention. You always take on board what I ask for and this is hugely appreciated. Not only that, but you always deliver. I couldn’t be happier with my order and I want to pay my utmost gratitude and respect to Lok Bahadur Lama for his craftsmanship. I will use it with pride, as I know it won’t fail me. 

Thank you once again. I already have more work to discuss with you and I can’t wait to unbox my next package!

First but definitely not last purchase

I just received this knife today. I am thoroughly impressed! I chose this one for two reasons: 1: because I love the design and 2: to first hand evaluate the experience of buying from KHHI. Both points delivered beyond expectations. The knife is gorgeous and hefty. No serrated parts, nothing fancy, just solid quality steel knife. I love it to bits, and I'm thinking of buying one more while it's on sale. I highly recommend this knife. Second the experience and general customer service. WAY beyond expectations! I placed the order the 26th of January, and received it here in Denmark on the 10th of February. That's an amazingly short time imo. I had to pay about 40 dollars in import taxes/customs fees, but that is solely because of my country's laws etc. All through the process, KHHI has kept Me regularly updated concerning my order, even sending Me pictures of the knife and sheath before sending them. Perfect customers service. Other things worth mentioning: it comes with 1 year guarantee + lifetime warranty. Excellent. It also comes with a certificate of authenticity, and a card with all imaginable details (including fingerprints!) or the particular craftsman, who made my knife. (A warm thank you to Kumar Rasaily) Overall I can't recommend this place enough, and I am definitely purchasing here again. The rating only goes to five stars, so here's one well deserved sixth: *.

I have received my Parang a couple days ago. It is a great quality sharp enough. Even I knew the measurements when I ordered in reality it’s a little bit too heavy and I thought it will be lil bit more wide. Overall there is no complaints. It’s a badass machete I like it a lot. Packaging was really detailed and the shipping was really fast ! Arrived as it described. Thank you guys I will order in the future again . Z

Hello. I have received my KHHI parang with 9.5 blade. I really like how it turned out. The side of the blade has a B. Please tell him that I'm very happy with the parang. I plan to buy more parangs in the future. The sheath is very nice. I would like for the person with the symbol B to make all my future blades.

I have a question. Do you make Kydex sheath for all the knives you make or just for kukri?

Thank you have a great day.
