Making a Jungle Parang

We were recently contacted by a customer who was interested in making a parang like the ones featured in Ray’s programmes based in the jungle.  Sadly the parangs that Ray uses are very often used and left behind as they are relatively cheap to purchase and can cause problems when travelling with them in your luggage.  We therefore did not have any measurements that we could pass on to our customer, however, he took a good look at the videos on and was able to work with a blacksmith to produce the following results:

About Woodlore Limited

Woodlore, The School of Wilderness Bushcraft, was founded in 1983 by the British Bushcraft expert, Ray Mears. Paving the way for Bushcraft courses in the UK, Woodlore began with Ray teaching small groups of students the knowledge and techniques that he had spent most of his early life honing. With Ray’s ambition and perserverance, Woodlore has since grown into a world-renowned and highly respected school, offering in-depth courses on a wide range of bushcraft and survival subjects.

    I must have imagined seeing Ray at a spit roast in Sussex a few years ago using his parang then!
