    Very Nice GeofS :thumbsup::thumbsup: The Parangatang is one blade that doesn't come with much of a sheath. I was always nervous when using the stock Sheath in fear of the blade slicing right through it :eek:

    I agree, I was always very cautious when sheathing it. This is so much better. :thumbsup:

    Looks Beautiful!!!
    But does it actually FEEL different.... it's been so long, but I remember that point biting me?
    Really nice looking combo you have.....

    I always believed My version was the Best..... but Yours definitely LOOKS the Best! Good job, Love the strips!!!

    The point has never been a problem for me; it actually helps me retain the blade while swinging hard.

    Apples to oranges comparison, your Beckerangatang is exceptionally cool. :)

    It’s a great chopper. The best price I’ve ever seen for them is during KA-BAR’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, they went for in the $40 range. Over the past two holiday seasons, I’ve bought six and have given five away as gifts. I wish I bought more.

    Look at it this way. You can wait for November to get your Backup #2 Parangatang maybe even #3 you know the Backup-Backup, So buy one now and a couple more when they are on sale and just look at all the money you have saved!!!

    BA0BFA4B-131A-421E-9C90-475C7D66AB67.jpeg This is one I made about a month ago. I decided I needed a new monster Bowie and this is the result. 18.25 inches overall, 1/4 inch 5160 with black G10. It’s big, it’s heavy and it chops like a demon

    Picked up this Parang for cheap. It's at least a 1/4 inch thick if not more and a FFG. The handle is cracked so I'm going to make a new one. I just ordered a natural canvas micarta block. Somebody tried the side grinder sharpening method. Nothing that I can't work out though. What really sold me is that Beautiful Patina it's deep and rich like the blueing on a classic Colt revolver.

    I have one of those with a cracked scale and a bent tip - picked it up as a farm auction years ago and never got around to cleaning it up and making a sheath.

    OTOH, buddy of mine had several trees cut down Friday and I was over there yesterday afternoon limbing them with my parangatang. (it lives in the truck)
    his son saw how deep it hit and had to give it a try -- he may be ordering one of his own soon.
    if the trees are still there this coming weekend, I'll head back over with my BK21, Skrama, and M18.

    I absolutely love the sound the tip makes when you add that last bit of snap to the swing right before it hits the wood.
    whick-thump!

    Y
    You know your Kuks vik. It's definitely all about the snap. The Patrol sounds like a willow switch right before it hits.
