parsha Posted October 4, 2021 Share Posted October 4, 2021 Hi Folks, Working on a very small version of a parang made from a piece of truck leaf spring. I am thinking of a 3.5 inch cutting edge and a long ricasso which I am thinking will give good forward weight to such a small blade . Aiming for OAL of 9 inches. Need advice about how to shape the tang give it a good downward curve or keep it straight at an angle where the ricasso ends at the handle. Also looking for suggestions about overall design. I am thinking a peened wooden handle should be nice . Right now it is at 8 inches OAL and will be drawing out the tang a little more Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
