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'.
