    As a parang lover, I will most likely need to get me one of these HI versions!

    Nice to see it done in the style of candung/bandol:

    I'd like to see some full-tang versions. Very cool!

    It's awesome to see HI making a Bandol parang! CSG if you get one, let us know how it compares to Valiant Co's. I mean Indonesians have been making Indonesian blades for a long time, and Valiant Co's indo blades are pretty good. Either way, I'm sure if HI's parang is not excellent from the onset, it'll vastly improve by the time the next batch is done. The Kamis here are great. :thumbup:

    Will do! :thumbup: With the job situation improved for the time being, the prospect of being able to acquire a few blades again (well, MORE so :D) is exciting!

    Yes, mine is indeed a horn handle. Developed a crack at the rear near the tang, but after a crazy-glue/epoxy coated thread wrap, the crack has never gone anywhere since.
