Please note: This article is about the weapon. For other uses of the term, please see Parangu (disambiguation).


A Parangu was a machete which was not made of the intricately folded steel of a katana. A katana could easily break a parangu in combat. [1]

Tool Edit

Parangu was a short blade with a wide tip, used to clear brush and weeds from land for farming or building. The Mantis Clan's sailors adopted it as both a weapon and a tool to cut rope with while sailing. [2] The weapon was particularly popular among the Tsuruchi Bounty Hunters, who used it as both a tool and a back-up weapon for when their bows were unavailable. [3]
