Survival Series Parang

We can’t know for sure, but it’s very likely that primitive jungle tribesmen knew a thing or two about attacks from the undead. Modeled after a traditional jungle machete, the Parang is a modern-day warrior’s dream weapon battling the uprising. Light, razor sharp and perfectly balanced, the Parang makes quick work of the rotting flesh of walkers and never, ever loses its edge. This is the machete design that has been slaying the undead for centuries.


*This is an incredible machete for clearing a path in the backcountry.

5 minimalist fred F. - JUL 7, 2013

used it backpacking through NJ pinelands. best 40 bucks I have ever spent. Light weight is great for long walks with full pack. Full tang makes all the difference.whatever doomsday scenario takes will be on my belt!

5 outdoorsman / lumberjack- june 30, 2013 apolixtroy84 - JUN 30, 2013

A must have!!!!! Wether using just around the campsite or in the deep thisle & brush this thing is incredible and more... light weight, easy sheiving, not to mention the sheer look of this knife tells it all!!! you cant really know its true power and usefullness unless its in your very own hands!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4 should i should i not dallin - JUN 22, 2013

im thinking about getting this machete or the gerber gator which one would you choose

3 All-powerful creator of the universe Ryan - APR 12, 2013

"...never, ever loses it's edge"? Really? What, it's made of adamantium, like Wolverine's claws?!! I had to sharpen mine.
Anyway, could be a little bit longer. Cuts fine, just needs a little additional leverage.
The handle is really nice.

4 awesome jacob - APR 2, 2013

i love its unique features
the only problem i found was that sheath was not very useful and was hard to pull

5 Pastor Jerry - FEB 13, 2013

Went to the Big Island Hawaii to clear a homestead lot full of underbrush and thicket. Used the parang barehanded and even after two days of chopping hard wood about two inches in diameter, no blisters... amazing sharpness and balance

5 great blade David - OCT 23, 2012

love this machete its exactly what i was looking for i'm very pleased with the grip and the sheath that came with mine seems to not have many of the issues i have read about no complaints at all wish i had another just like it.

5 chopper Jimi Nglabimbi - OCT 3, 2012

This is a great machete, I have had one for about 18mths now and its been in constant use. camping scrub cutting, digging
its blade and handle are still in perfect condiction, my ONLY critisim is that the Sheath is not very durable.

5 Sargeant Angel - OCT 1, 2012

This is the best investment I have made as far as outdoor tools. Took it with me to Afghanistan and became handy right away chopping trees out of the road ahead of us. Great tool to have in a jam like that. To bad they have to recall the one I used. I've had it since it first came out.Thanks again.

5 Bladesman Daniel Rogers - SEP 20, 2012

I used this to chop down a tree 10" in diameter. Directly after it was still sharp enough to tackle any job. Used and sharpened properly this tool will do more for you than most machetes!

5 Cpt. Drax - JUL 31, 2012

Awesome machete, extremely strong and well build. The way it is shaped makes it even easer to swing.
Having the BG on it makes the best even better!!!
Bear Grylls is awesome and so is Gerber, putting the 2 together is just brilliant!!

Excellent blade, worth every penny.. and then some!!

5 what is so bad about bg TED - JUN 2, 2012

honestly i would buy this item ( if i had the money) i don't see why a product becomes bad when it has bg on it. plus bear grylls's show is how to survive in extreme conditions. if you were smart you would know that drinking your own pee provides valuable hydration

3 Archaeologist Marc - MAY 25, 2012

I love the parang, I would buy one if it came in a non-BS (BG) model. Bear Grylls is a tool, but I don't need him emblazoned on my tools.

5 Deep in the woods Dean - APR 25, 2012

Perfect for packing in the woods. This will get you fire wood with no problem. Perfect for shelter size wood for survival.

Great knife.

Highly recommended.

5 Your Title Justin - FEB 26, 2012

I bought one and I love it. The only think I would change is the length, I have other machettes that are longer which allows me to hack away at further brush, other then that it is amazingly durable and useful.

5 Knight Johnathan - FEB 17, 2012

This is the finest blade ever:)

2 Mr. Eh - FEB 12, 2012

It coulb be a lttle heavier, and a tad thicker. If you doun't swing at branch or sapling it glances off. I like the design of the sheath, but a couple more attaching points woulod have been nice. It seems to me that it would probably be better at cutting some meat and tissue

3 Awesome Ryan - FEB 11, 2012

Lose the orange color.

5 Seriosly???? Bear's Defender - FEB 10, 2012

Guys stop saying stuff like if you follow what Bear does you will end of dead... that's a no brainer because your not trained by british special forces.... Also about the whole drinking pee thing... well if you are smart enough to know how to get water out of pee then you could get a few days of hydration out of it..... It's not stupid it's smart.

2 A REAL Man vs Wild guy Jeff - JAN 28, 2012

I like the style but not the orange and the endorsement person. Anyone follows what he does, will surely end up dead!

5 Great weapon Zombie Hunter - JAN 18, 2012

Bear Grylls must have had an encounter with zombies on one of his adventures. This parang is perfect for chopping through zombie limbs, although it's not an ideal stabbing weapon.

5 crap Sikes - JAN 15, 2012

hey make a blade about a foot and a half blade which extends all the way through the handle. same style blade and ill buy it. screw this cheap handle i can wrap my own to fit.

1 Undead Uuuuurggh... - JAN 5, 2012

I'd give this more than one star, but for the fact that it's endorsed by Bear Grylls. He seems like a lovely fella, but as disgusting as we can be, even zombies don't drink their own wee wee.


I love this thing I pick one up about a week ago it I great the sheath is different but I love it the angle of the blade is great I came out of the box sharp and I have cut down some trees with It and it is still sharp I keep it with me whenever I am in the wild good jungle tool. THANKS GERBER AND BEAR GRYLLS

2 throttletony tony - DEC 7, 2011

Broke in the first 5 minutes - worked well on small branches, then broke when working a wrist-sized branch. Broke at bolt-hole in handle. Local store swapped it for a new one. Weight, size and design are great, I hope the second one is more sturdy.

5 Indonesian Machete Samuel - NOV 22, 2011

It will completely cut their brain into pieces!

1 Zombie Zombie Matt - NOV 21, 2011

This machete variance is terrible for me. The Angled blade on it is perfect for slicing through my limbs and other body parts. Not to mention it is lightweight, so we can't even swarm properly.. From a Zombie, do not buy.

5 bg, gerber, and the walking dead didnt let me down michael - NOV 20, 2011

got this the other day for my birthday, its awesome. comfortable to swing, nice heft. i have some hand and wrist issues and the ergonomic handle makes gripping it less painful than most machetes. a little research about the parang style knife before you buy will keep you happy.

4 Great Tool Justin - OCT 28, 2011

I just got mine in yesterday, and this thing is awesome. Bought it for backwoods camping. Should it ever be needed to hack up zombies... it will lay waste to everything in its path. Only issue i have with it is the sheath, its nice but the only way to

3 Needs Work Matt - OCT 28, 2011

Not a bad tool for brush removal but make sure you oil it after hackin at some zombies.. the non coated surface will rust!

5 Daryl Dixon daryl dixion - OCT 26, 2011

I have no need for this item yet, unless the zombie apocalypse happens or just to hold while watching walking dead

5 BG!!! Yes Please Alex S - OCT 26, 2011

I'd buy just because it has the Bear Grylls name on it. But if it has the same grip that his survival knife has than that would be even better.

1 Not interested Dave - OCT 24, 2011

Bear Grylls!! Come on, he drinks his own urine for crying out loud.

5 Zombie Fisherman Mack Rhoades - OCT 23, 2011

I use a Gerber Parang style Machete for clearing brush like Devil's Walking Stick from my path when hunting and fishing.

4 BG? No thanks Katina - OCT 23, 2011

If a non-BG model was made I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Not that I have anything against the guy, I just don't want to end up using it on any of his fans when they geek out upon seeing my weapon. :\

2 MR. RH - OCT 21, 2011

Would much prefer a large Ghurka style blade

5 Zombie Hunter Art - OCT 21, 2011

I prefer to use screw drivers to kill zombies by shoving it in their skulls ! I just use this as my back up!

5 Zombi-nator Tom - OCT 19, 2011

Great for stopping the hordes of zombies i run into all the time........also used while kayaking and camping!!!

5 Excellent for killing walkers Rick Grimes - OCT 19, 2011

I was looking for a friend's daughter when I stumbled upon what seemed to be an empty church. I walk in and I see 4 walkers sitting in the seats. I grabbed this here Parang and ran it right into some guy's head. IT WAS AWESOME! But I had to hold my compos

3 Bear Grylls? Duncan - OCT 18, 2011

If this had less the 'BG' seal of approval and more of a Walking Dead theme, I'd buy it right now.

5 Master Motorboater Indie - OCT 18, 2011

This machete makes me want to choreograph a machete dance in the style of 'Machetes' the National Mexican Dance traditionally performed by 6 men.

If only I was a professional choreographer. Oh, wait...I am!
