Parang Kota Belud
RM180.00 – RM425.00
The Parang has traditionally been crafted by the Bajaus from Kota Belud area from a long time back. The ones made by them these days are usually from scrap iron which goes through a process of melting, pounding shaping, and finally polishing. The blades are straight and tapered, from a sharp tip have patterns etched into the metal along the top side. The hit and sheath are carved out of wood, but occasionally one can still come across an antique Parang with a wonderfully carved hilt of the horn. In days gone by, the Parang was used as a weapon as well as a work tool, but these days it is mainly a decorative item for display.
