Village Chandong Vs Duku Chandong

Village Chandong is one of many design variations of Duku Chandong in the market that has become a go-to parang or machete for wilderness camping and jungle trekking. A traditional multi-tool for wood processing and all manners of cutting, chopping and delimbing, preparing meals and games, and performs just as well in the backyard.

The blade stock of both parangs are the same at 7mm thick except the 489gr Village Chandong 12″ is more distal tapered compared to 592gr Duku Chandong 12″ Heavy which is thicker that explains the weight difference.

The unique “chandong” blade design has a leading unsharpened or blunt section for a choke-up or forward grip position for detail work that transitions to the leading cutting edge. If you need a parang, Village Chandong or Duku Chandong have you covered!
