August 2017 lot of parangs for sale. There are some shorter (roughly 8 inches) blades on offer
The new lot of parangs are finally ready for sale. I have just collected the sheaths from Raman a few days ago. There are not many parangs. We have added the (roughly) 8 inches parangs into the offerings. They are slightly cheaper but maintains the same quality as their bigger ‘brothers’. The parangs are forward heavy with a spine about 5mm thick.
Please click on the parangs for sale page and email me via the Contact page to place your order. As usual, prefered payment method will be Paypal because by far it is the safest way to send/receive payments.
Looking forward to hear from you soon.
Christopher parang setup includes his full tang blade
I am stoked! Christopher from San Jose CA, USA emailed me a few pictures of his Sepuh Crafts parang setup. He paired the parang with a full tang blade from LT Wright (The Genesis) on the sheath. A good pair combo for any outdoor field use.
The Sepuh Crafts parang is paired with a LT Wright Genesis fixed blade. A good looking combo!
Our thanks to Christopher for sharing his parang setup
Having a smaller knife piggy back on the sheath is a good idea. Many of the locals who use their parang in the jungle would have a smaller blade for food prep too. In the jungle, a parang cuts through many types of vegetation and this leaves all kinds of sap on the blade. Hence, it does make sense to have a smaller blade for food prep (especially).
I want to thank you Christopher and Jarle for taking the time and effort to send pictures to share on Sepuh Crafts. We are very happy and proud to see the parangs in a foreign land serving their owners.
How Jarle of Norway ties his parang to his body
Here are some pics of parang setup sent to me from Jarle of Norway. After posting some pictures he sent us on our last blog post, I received some questions on how the sheath is attached to the cordage. This is an good trial and test parang setup with excellent results.
A Sepuh Crafts parang with its waist wear set up by a customer from Norway
A few weeks back, I received a picture of Sepuh Crafts parang from a customer in Norway. It is always good to hear from customers who are fielding our parangs in the outdoors. It is also interesting to see how customers have their parang setup for wear around the waist. Our two sided lanyard ready sheaths allow for multiple setup and this is one of the many ways.
Here are a few more pictures of the parang in Norway wilderness.

Some feedback from our Norwegian customer:
“I absolutely love this parang! It is very effective and very versatile. It is also very comfortable in use. Lovely handle.”
Sepuh Crafts parangs have been sold and shipped to many countries around the world. If you are interested to own one or would like more information, please see our Parangs for sale page or write to me directly via the Contact page.
The straight golok style parang. Each blade design will be paired with its appropriate handle and sheath
I will be re-introducing a few new local parang designs at Sepuh Crafts. These parang designs are not something I created myself but are based upon existing designs used by locals in Malaysia. A few of the designs have already been on Sepuh Crafts in the past. Due to several inquiries, I have decided to revive them again.
