My favorite use and carry machete
This has now become my all around favorite use and carry machete. Hefty but not to heavy and with a nice balance feel in the hand. Light but not to light and the forward weight feels just right and not to hard on the wrist. Nicely finished unlike my most recent purchase of a village parang on which the handle is so poorly finished on that particular one that the edges of this tang protrude above the handle material significantly with sharp edges and the rivets are all proud with sharp edges as well. On this parang, the handle requires lots of finish work or wrapping, or never to be used without gloves, whereas this lochnessmuk is well finished all around and much more comfortable in the hand. Somehow, the village parang was overlooked by quality control.
