    Uhh, you can't be talking about parangs without at least a CAD sketch!

    Love me some parangs. The other offerings look great too Hunter. Congrats on the subforum.

    I've got more than a CAD sketch

    I had two of these Prototype blanks cut from .178 52100. Just tempered back the spine on this blank. Hopefully the temper line will show after an etch. This is going to be a heavy, hard hitting parang for hard wood forests. I plan on making a much lighter and thinner version for the jungles of south america and southeast asia, likely from AEBL or 12c27.

    Big blades are going to be my focus this year so expect a Kukri, bowie, and two handed bush sword within the next couple months.

    Hunter used the sleeping mammoth for measuring the parang!

    haha didn't notice the loose fly. I guess I always go for maximum comfort in the shop

    The parang is 21.5 overall with a 15inch blade and is cut from .175 stock. I think this model is going to be a hit!

    Look whats currently at the water jet

    36 inches of .170 3V. This is going to be more or less the king of all things that chop

    Great to see you've got your own forum up and running Hunter. I look forward to all these models, particularly the cpm3v choppers. How will 3v compare to 52100 performance do you think?

    Hey,

    Thanks for posting and im glad your bolo is working out for you!

    Ive used alot of 3V and even more 52100 in the time ive been making blades here what Ive drawn from my experience.

    For a big chopper, 3V will be better, but most of the time the performance improvement is not worth the price for the customer. The main advantages of 3V in a huge blade are stain resistance and the ability to take and hold a thinner edge and grind. Wear resistance isnt a big part of the equation when it comes to chopping since most of the loss of sharpness comes from chipping or rolling and not from abrasion. So 3V will be able to take a thinner edge which will make it bite deeper and it will be more stain resistant but these advantages come at a huge cost. Thats why I prefer to make my machetes from 52100. It has amazing performance and it keeps cost way down foe the customer. Also in a super thin blade I think the speing tempered spine that can be done on 52100 gives it an advantage over 3V in the toughness department but I havent directly tested this so its purely theoretical at the moment.

    So to sum it up , 3V is better, but in most cases the slight increase in performance is not going to be worth the massive increase in cost.

    For this blade I used 3V because i needed an air hardening steel due to the length of the blade. (Peters cant oil quench a blade this big) I will also use some s7 for this model in the future

    I just noticed you have a sub forum now. I will have to post some pics of the Fell Beast. It's certainly been getting a workout.

    Tankerwolf-

    I Love to see some pics of your Fell beast. I just made a new thread for user pics!

    LG&M

    Thanks so much for stopping by to post! The Liberator bolo is the best chopping blade I've used yet for hard woods. In my testing it blasted through frozen hickory pretty easily.

    Hey totallynotlex,

    I am currently taking orders and can probably modify a design to your liking. Drop me a PM or email and we can discuss further.
