MYPGLK135: Golok 135 Machete
While the Chandong is common in East Malaysia, the Golok is more often seen in West Malaysia. The functionality of this tool ranges from skinning animals and cutting weeds to opening coconuts. The blade shape favors more intricate cutting rather than chopping and slicing. The attractive wood handle is durable and remains grippy regardless of the conditions. The carbon steel used is ideal for tools of this nature because of its natural hardness. It handles rugged use well and has exceptional hardness.
The blade which is made of 5160 high carbon steel or commonly know as leaf spring steel and has real BIDOR MALAYSIA forge marks. The blades are hand forged and each one is unique--there will never be two of the same.
The handle is made of Eco wood sourced from Croatia. They are farmed Beech wood and are a renewable resource. The handle shape is of a simple and traditional design . It has been proven to be a very comfortable handle and will not give you any blisters despite chopping away for hours.
My Parang made the handle slightly longer to accommodate large hands. The handle design enables various grips comfortably, from choking up to the blade, to holding the handle way back. Various handle position enables different cutting tasks.
I'll definitely 100% will be ordering from this company again many times in the future as the products arrived in a very quick amount of time during the holiday season which is always impressive. I will be a lifelong client of this company.
