Sad news for us at Sepuh Crafts. We are halting all international sale of parangs for the time being. Recently, two of our parangs, destined for Germany and Australia was returned from Pos Malaysia. The parangs never even left Malaysia!
We made several calls and was told that they are now enforcing a regulation that does not allow Parangs (categorized as dangerous weapons) to be shipped via air parcel. All parcels are now 100% scanned, so it does not matter how we declare it, they would still see it.
The only option they say may be other courier service. So, we contacted DHL and turns out they too no longer ship items dangerous weapons for consumers. Not sure what that means but I have a feeling it would be ok to ship commercially as in bulk.
Anyways, we at Sepuh Crafts have no choice but to make this difficult decision to halt all sale of parangs to be shipped internationally. However, it is still okay to ship the parangs locally. So, if you are travelling within Malaysia, we can still have them shipped to you locally.
We will continue to search for ways to overcome this. In the mean time, I would like to apologize for any inconveniences caused.
