MY Parang – Lading 12"

MY Parang cutting tools are made exclusively by hand in Malaysia using the finest material available and using traditional methods.

Having its roots for a long time in the Malay culture, the Parang Lading is a quite popular traditional designed parang. It is believed to originate from the state of Kedah, Malaysia.  The Parang Lading is also used as a weapon in the Silat Cekak ( Traditional Malaysian martial arts ) , other than as an agricultural tool . There are some slight differences in the everyday tool and the ones used in Silat cekak.

One of the main difference is that for Silat Cekak, the Parang Lading  needs to be made to match the owners arm. There are specific ways on how to measure this. Why does it need to be so? It is believed that a proper sized tool ( matched with the owner ) will not “bite” the user / owner. This is very important, maybe not so in everyday use, but definitely  during Close Quarter Combat.

Another difference is that the Parang lading used in Silat Cekak is usually only sharp about 1-2 inches from the tip. This is done so the un-sharpened part of the blade is used to stop or deflect the opponents strike. The agricultural version has perhaps 10 inches of sharpened edge  ( on a 12 inch blade ) .


We make use of the traditional rat tail construction for our parangs as it is a proven design that has withstood the test of time and evolution.
However, we have added a brass pin under the collar for added confidence.
The parang is a traditional tool and is embedded in our everyday lives and culture throughout Malaysia. Maintain your parang well by keeping it sharp and oiled : and ALLWAYS remember to use it responsibly. Any abuse or miss-use will potentially result in damage or injury.

The MY Parang now comes with a ballistic nylon sheath with webbing straps and a Velcro retaining strap.
