Rated 5 out of 5 by MacJr8800 Pay Attention To The Online Pricing
Bear Grylls are almost always fantastic knives and multi-tools, using a lot of them myself. I'm one of those "doomsday" or "apocalypse" people. But if you look at the pricing, you will see that the full size parang is $5 dollars cheaper than the compact on the website as of 7-10-13. I saved the small money myself. The compact and the regular parang are both great for chopping, slicing, and hacking. I've actually cut through .5cm thick metal wire. But do stay on top of the sharpness of the blade frequently.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jorswat Okay product
Of course, being Bear Grylls, you are paying a lot of money for the name. The machete itself is very good quality. However, it does not come very sharp. My biggest complaint is the sheath. There are two buttons and a Velcro strap that hold the machete in place. It seems that the sheath is not big enough because I always have problems getting the second button to snap shut. Overall, not a bad product. Remember, you are paying for the name.
