Imagine this: you’re hacking your way through a dense canopy of jungle brush, just trying to get from your camp to the long-lost temple of some long-forgotten deity or demigod of the ancient forest people who used to live in these parts before they discovered the virtues of indoor plumbing and cable television. The full-sized machete you’re using to accomplish this task feels like it’s getting heavier in your numb, unaccustomed-to-manual-labor arm, and you’re only 10 minutes into what will likely be a three-hour journey.
What’s a city slicker archaeology professor with a desire to see the temple’s treasures in a museum (where they belong) rather than in the private collection of some unscrupulous artifact hunter to do? Give up? No way! Maximize your efforts while minimizing your muscle fatigue with the Bear Grylls Compact Parang mini machete.
But those of us who don’t make habitual treks into the rainforests and jungles of the world’s few uncharted acres can find other useful purposes for this baby machete, too.
Use the Bear Grylls Compact Parang to Cut Your Way out of Places
Sure, a veteran outdoorsman like Man Vs. Wild, Born Survivor, and Ultimate Survival star Bear Grylls can swing a full-sized machete all day long with ease. But he knows we’re not all cut out (pun shamelessly intended) to do the same in spite of how useful such an implement can be for even comparably mundane yard work; hence, the Bear Grylls Compact Parang was born.
This pint-sized machete may not hack down trees, but it will allow you to cut your way through brush and smaller limbs (on foliage and, I suppose, zombies if the need arises).
The Bear Grylls Compact Parang:
- has a 100% high carbon stainless steel blade for consistent sharpness and cutting.
- has a rubber grip that’s ergonomically designed and textured for easy gripping.
- includes a full nylon sheath.
- has a blade that is 9.3 inches in length.
- includes an official survival guide by Bear Grylls.
The Bear Grylls Compact Parang is Perfect for Hiking and Camping
Those who enjoy the outdoors and like to partake in hiking, camping, or other outside activities will find the Bear Grylls Compact Parang to be a definite asset. This mini machete can be a useful tool for cutting through twigs for kindling or clearing a place to lay down your sleeping bag or other outdoor equipment. The Bear Grylls Compact Parang can also be used as a defensive weapon against dangerous animals, reptiles, or other living (or undead!) creatures if and when they pose a hazard to you.
