According to legends, the Parang batik was first created in the late sixteenth century by Sultan Danang Sutawijaya, the first ruler of the Mataram dynasty. While meditating along the coast of the Southern Sea, the king observed that the waves were pounding against the cliffs, weakening the rocks and leaving them vulnerable to abrasion.
It was the power of the waves which became the fundamental philosophy of the Parang, reminding the wearer of the greatness within him. The Javanese people also believe that the Parang batik contains supernatural power for healing, protection and bringing victory in battles.
