[chuck] in Other, West Kalimantan, blacksmiths, parangs

A group of blacksmiths in West Kalimantan making a parang, or bush knife, out of the leaf spring from a Toyota Land Cruiser.  Interesting/scary that everyone is wearing sandals as they pound the red hot metal. [NOTE: I actually had an old Toyota Land Cruiser (40 Series) when I lived in West Kalimantan in the early 1990's. Amazing vehicle].
