Knife Description:

The Fox Parang XL was designed by Alfredo Doricchi, who is also the designer of the Fox Parang Jungle Bushcraft Knife and the Compso.

The Parang XL is inspired by the Parang of Southeast Asia. Parangs are comparable to the machetes of South America and share similar function, primarily for clearing dense woody vegetation or general utility.

The Parang XL fits this function well. The 26 cm (9.06?) blade is 6 cm (2.36?) at its widest point, providing a good yet manageable amount of weight while chopping.

This is amplified by a 3.5 mm thickness that limits flex and gives the blade a solid feel.

A wide, high flat grind terminates near to the spine, leaving full thickness and added rigidity along the total length of the blade.

The secondary grind is even along the entire edge and very sharp. Made from 440C Stainless Steel with a hardness of 56HRc, the blade will be durable, easy to maintain and corrosion resistant.

The scales on the XL are ABS a material which is lightweight, stable and durable through a wide temperature range (-20 to 80º C, -4 to 176ºF). It is also impervious to water. More importantly, ABS is a very impact resistant, tough plastic making it a suitable material for a tool that will receive repeated shocks. Since ABS is a thermal plastic, it has been injection moulded providing fully contoured and heavily textured Handle Scales.

The Fox Parang XL is manufactured in Italy’s Cutlery City Maniago.
