Custom wood handle for my parang

The “Tour de Jungle” bikepacking trip is just around the corner. Just when i thought everything was ready, something falls apart. My parang’s handle finally cracked after more than a decade of loyal service (not bad for a plastic handle). For some reason, this parang is one of my personal favorite. So with a help from a blacksmith, a custom full tang wood handle has given my parang a new life.

With custom full tang wood handle, my favorite parang  is now stronger than ever before and it definitely feels and looks better than the old plastic handle (pictured above). So nice... Even the housefly can't resist it.
