Parang - Ifugao, Philippines

  • $ 30000

A Parang is a type of large knife with a straight blade that is believed to be of Malaysian or Indonesian origin.  In the Philippines, it was adopted for use as a chopping bolo or machete.   This Parang features an ornate snake-head handle.


During Team KIL's recent weapons expedition in the Philippines, we traveled to the Kali Tribe Alliance Global Convention.  Our KIL founder, Tuhon Nick Papadakis, was asked to instruct a class on his kali techniques.  The convention organizer, Tuhon Rommel Tortal, invited us to visit his home the next day.

As we stepped into Rommel's office, we were impressed by his walls which were lined with racks and racks of blades.  These were swords and knives made by the Ifugao people; traditional Filipino blades, forged to look contemporary.  We definitely had to bring some back for you.
