Bushcrafter (boy, I've got a lot to say!)
Are there any of the bushcraft parangs left? I would possibly like to get one one if they are still available.
If you mean the FKMD parangs, then yes.

I returned two unsold XLs to FKMD via Heinnie for replacement under warranty. I had damaged one of them, with very little effort, cutting relatively soft wood. According to Heinnie the replacements are due to be with me around the end of January. They are supposed to be tougher than the ones I returned.

I have one of the six-inch left unsold and unused. It includes the survival kit. I gave one of these to my wife at Christmas. She likes it a lot, in fact it's by her side on the sofa right now. :rolleyes: A week or so ago I used it to cut some hard dead wood on a fallen ash to clear a path. I was not gentle with it. Afterwards it showed no sign of damage, even the black coating was still in great shape. Then I made a spoon with it and some of the ash I'd cut up. I found I particularly like its spine for using two thumbs to do push cuts. Unfortunately the handle is a bit too small for my wide hands. I'm thinking about making another handle. :) A couple of days ago my wife used it to cut up some fabric :rolleyes: and it was still pretty much as sharp as it came out of the box, even after hacking through that hard ash.

As far as I know the have an other heat threating which brings tougher steel.
So the Parangs can get some heavier work to handle
But Ged can inform you more about it.

(I sended him an email around 13 jan. and he was saying that he was going to Europe for a few weeks so he could be afk)
