A veteran adventurer like Bear Grylls might be able to clear trail with a full-size machete as easily as most people trim their fingernails. For the rest of us, a weekend spent swinging a big blade like that is a quick way to make enemies with whole set of shoulder muscles you never knew you had. Which is why Gerber paired down the Bear Grylls Compact Parang to a more packable, convenient size. Modeled after the tool Indonesian tribesman have carried into the jungles for generations, the Compact Parang is Gerber’s shoulder-friendly answer to the standard, full-size machete. By combining Gerber’s decades of experience crafting tools and Bear Grylls’ adventure knowledge, this stout, sturdy blade acts as a lumberjack on the trail and a surgeon around camp. It can whack through thick grass and woody brush all day, then chop vegetables and whittle fire starter by night.
With a tried and true blade shape, Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Parang Machete is great for all-day use in the woods or the backyard. The full tang high carbon steel blade holds a sharp edge and the rubber handle provides the grip needed for all weather conditions. Keeping it all together is the ballistic nylon sheath which features the Land to Air rescue signals on the back which doubles as storage for Bear's Priorities of Survival Pocket Guide.
A modern take on the classic jungle tool, the Gerber Bear Grylls Parang II machete is lightweight, sharp and perfectly balanced—perfect for clearing a path or taking on other chopping tasks.
